Drain potatoes and allow them to cool completely. Refrigerate until potatoes are cold.

Peel off potato skin and cut into ½-inch chunks. Place in large bowl. Thinly slice radishes and green onions and add to potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and mix together.

Potatoes must be cold when mayo is added. Otherwise, heat from the potato will cause the mayo to become translucent.
