  • 6 medium potatoes cut into cubes and boiled
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 5 eggs boiled
  • 1/2 cup black olives sliced or whole
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • fresh parsley chopped, for garnish


  • Peel the potatoes and cut them up in small cubes. Boil them for about 20 minutes or until they are tender when you stick a fork in them.
  • Boil the eggs and cut them up in smaller pieces.
  • Mix all the ingredients together gently and garnish with parsley.


  1. Store this salad in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 - 5 days. This recipe should not be frozen- the texture and color of potatoes after freezing and thawing is not very appetizing.
  2. Please note that nutritional information can vary greatly based on products used.
