Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Potatoes Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 5 pound(s) Idaho potatoes, peel and cubed
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 5 - hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) sweet pickle cubes or relish
  • 1/2 cup(s) dill pickle cubes or relish
  • 1 stalk(s) celery, diced, optional
  • - salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1.5-2 cup(s) Hellman's mayonnaise
  • 1.5-2 tablespoon(s) mustard
  • - paprika, for garnish, optional
  • 1 - hard boiled egg, sliced, for garnish, optional
Intructions :
  • Peel potatoes and cut them into 1-inch cubes; place in a 5-quart pot. Cover with water (I add some salt to water); boil for approximately 7 to 8 minutes (time may vary so check for firmness around 5 to 6 minutes, don\u2019t overcook and don\u2019t undercook, you don\u2019t want mashed potato salad and you don\u2019t want undercooked potatoes). Drain and rinse in cold water; drain well
  • While potatoes are draining and cooling off, combine chopped onion and eggs; set aside
  • In a separate bowl, combine pickles, celery, salt, pepper, mustard, and mayonnaise
  • Once potatoes are cooled; add chopped onion and eggs; fold together gently
  • Add the mayonnaise mixture and combine gently with other ingredients. If the salad seems like you don\u2019t need all the mayonnaise mixture, don\u2019t use it all. If the salad seems too dry, add additional mayonnaise
  • Garnish top with sliced boiled eggs and sprinkle with paprika if desired
