Old Fashioned Potato Salad

27 Jul

I never liked potato salad until I was an adult, but my kids love it.  This is another simple basic recipe.  No cook-out would be complete without a big bowl of potato salad.

8 cups diced Red Potatoes – red potatoes lend the best texture for potato salad

1 small to medium finely diced onion

2 boiled eggs, peeled and diced

2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish

1 Tablespoon yellow mustard

1 cup Miracle Whip (I use the light version, but regular is fine too)

Cook potatoes in salted water to cover just until done.  Don’t overcook, you don’t want them to be mushy. (Anna is my expert potato taster for doneness)

Drain and put in a bowl to cool til they’re warm but not hot.  When potatoes have cooled down, add the rest of the ingredients and mix to combine.

Refrigerate  until thoroughly chilled and sprinkle with paprika right before serving.
