Original recipe yields 15 servings



  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool. Add whole potatoes to the water and boil until a knife is easily inserted, but they are not too soft. Drain and cool.
  2. Peel and chop the eggs and place them in a large serving bowl. Stir in the green onions. When the potatoes have cooled, peel and chop then add them to the bowl. Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and stir in the mayonnaise. Sprinkle parley over the top. Chill until serving. This is best served chilled.

I enjoyed this potato salad. Everyone was trying to figure out the ingrediants because it does have an original taste to it. It makes people wonder and it's funny to watch their expressions as they notice there is something special and different about this potato salad. I didn't give it a 5 because while delicious it was not restaurant material, but for home and for anyone that loves potato salad, I do recommend this salad. I don't think it's for everyone, but everyone in my family did enjoy it.

this is really a wonderful recipe. our traditional family potato salad is basically the same- we just add small bits of fried bacon, green peppers and about a tablespoon of sweet chilli sauce- it makes a world of difference!



I cut the entire recipe in half and the sweetened condensed milk made it too sweet. However, the condensed milk is a nice twist in the recipe for a new flavor every now and then
