    Fill up a large size pot with enough water to cover the eggs with at least an inch of water. Add 1 Tbsp. of salt and bring to a full boil. Gently spoon in the eggs. Bring the water back to a boil, cover, and then cook for 12 minutes. Drain hot water from the pot and run cold water thoroughly over the eggs. Add enough ice into the water to create ice bath.

All cubed vegetables season to taste with salt and pepper and gently mix. Peel the apples and cut into same small cubes. Remove pickles from the jar (no need to peel) and also cut into small cubes.
