- 3 eachs Eggs

Start by boiling the potatoes in plenty of salted water until they are easily pierced with a fork and ready; as soon as they are cooked, allow them to cool down and then chop them in halves or quarters.
Try chopping the next ingredients in about the same size so to allow them to mix better, in a more uniform way.
Boil the eggs and, as soon as they are cooked, cool them down in some ice water; once cool, peel them and then chop them.
Peel and chop the onion in small dice; should you find raw onion too strong, then soak it in cold water for about 10 minutes, then allow to dry, as this will remove the strong raw smell and taste. Alternatively, you can use spring onion.
Peel and chop the carrots; should you not like raw carrots, you can lightly boil them for 3-4 minutes, so to eliminate some of the crunch.
Wash and peel the celery, then chop it to size.
