Potato Salad
Instructions
  1. Thoroughly wash potatoes. Do not peel. Set aside. Add 2 cups of water to a large sauce pan. Stir in salt. Add washed potatoes. Add more water to cover.
  2. Simmer over medium-high heat until fork tender and potatoes break easily. If they are hard/crunchy, boil 5-10 minutes longer. Rinse fork-tender potatoes in cold water. Cool 15-20 minutes. Peel. Cut into bite sized pieces.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine potatoes, chopped eggs, onion, sweet salad cubes (or sweet relish), and chopped pimentos (if using). Add mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip) one tablespoon at a time until satisfied with creamy texture. Add mustard a little at a time until satisfied. Season with salt. Stir together.
  4. Garnish prepared potato salad by lightly sprinkling paprika over top (optional).
  5. Serve immediately. Or, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Although delicious immediately after preparation, it tastes better the next day.
Hard Boiled Eggs (Garnish)
  1. Peel eggs and “thinly” slice on a cutting board. Set aside.
  2. In small bowl, combine paprika, salt and ground black pepper.
  3. Sprinkle over top of sliced eggs. Use a spatula to place “seasoned” eggs over top of potato salad.
  4. Serve warm or cold.
