I love potato salad at my barbeque...I love it at a picnic too for that matter. I'm kind of picky when it comes to potato salad because I like a little crunch; but not too much. I like it thick and not runny with a little egg. I found the best recipe in my Betty Crocker's Cookbook. It is delicious.
Peel 2 pounds of delicious potatoes.
Cube them into bite-sized pieces.
Heat one inch of water to boiling. Add potatoes. Cover pan and let boil 20 to 25 minutes until tender.
Meanwhile, boil 4 eggs.
Mix Mayonnaise with
vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.
Add chopped celery.
And chopped onion.
And dice 3 eggs.
Combine with tender bite-sized potatoes and mix well.
Peel and slice remaining egg and add to top of salad. Hmmm. Something is missing.
I like to dust the top with paprika to give it a little color. I love this salad. It is the very best on the day you make it, so don't plan too far ahead with this dish. Enjoy!
