Potato Salad

Years ago, after eating lunch at a friend's house, I asked for the potato salad recipe. It was the best I had ever tasted!

Years later, that is still the recipe I reach for when I want potato salad!

Today the girls and I made it to have for supper, along with grilled turkey burgers. Mmmm!

Potato Salad

Hardboil 12 eggs. Peel and chill.
Potatoes: 16 large--peel, cook, chill

Dice eggs, potatoes, a medium sized onion, and 1 and 1/2 cup celery.

Cover with the following dressing:

3 cup mayonnaise [we like to use the Spectrum version]
6 T prepared mustard
4 teaspoons salt [we use the pink salt]
2 cup sugar [we typically reduce by at least 1/4 cup or more]

Chill all ingredients well, and then sprinkle with paparika before serving for visual interest.

(Today, we made the dressing up ahead and had it chilling while the eggs and potatoes were chilling so that we could quickly throw every thing together at supper time. Also, I just remembered that I usually add more eggs and potatoes--by two or so--more than the recipe calls for. The dressing always seems to make more dressing than needed for me unless I increase the eggs and  potatoes by a bit.)
