Homemade Potato Salad Recipe
Here is my favorite recipe for potato salad. I vary
this recipe from time to time based upon my mood and
encourage you to do the same.
4 large baking potatoes.
1/4 white or yellow onion (optional)
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup mayonaise
4 oz sweet relish
Boil the potatoes until they are done but not overcooked
I use the test here where I stick the fork in and it
meets a little resistance but not too much. How long
you boil them depends upon how big they are. You do want
the potatoes done though since no further cooking is
involve. If you overcook them, they don't really hurt
the recipe since the extra potatoe just mixes in with
the creamy portion of the mixture.
Boil the eggs over medium high heat until hard boiled.
Allow the potatoes and eggs to cool. You can run cold water
over them in a strainer to speed up the process.
Peel the potatoes and then slice into chunks. If you aim
for 1 inch by 1 inch chunck you will do well.
Peel and slice the egg into 1/2 inch pieces.
Chop the onion into very small pieces. I made this optional
because you WILL be able to smell the onion on your breath.
Therefore, if a little close contact is planned anytime soon
you probable want to leave the onion out.
Stir all ingredients gently except for the paprika.
After all ingredients are well mixed, pour into a bowl.
Add the parika across the top. Store in the refrigerator
until ready to serve.
This stuff is awesome!
