Summer salad with lettuce and mussels

salad with lettuce      

With lettuce and pickled cucumber We are going to turn a potato salad into a summery one. We will also put pickled mussels and we will use the liquid from the can to flavor the mayonnaise.

To make this type of salad, it is best to cook the potato and carrot in advance. This way we will have those ingredients very cold when we start preparing the recipe.

The eggs, if you like them with the liquid yolk, it is better to cook them when we want to bring our salad to the table. If you prefer them with a well curdled yolk, you can cook them before, along with the rest of the ingredients.
