MOM'S POTATO SALAD (serves 12)
*5 pounds Idaho Potatoes, cooked, cooled, peeled and cubed
*1 medium onion (I used red or yellow), chopped small
*2 celery sticks (approximately 1/4 cup), chopped small
*4 hard boiled eggs, cooled, peeled, and chopped small
*2 tablespoons sweet relish
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon pepper
*1 teaspoon paprika
*1 teaspoon celery seed
*1 to 1 1/2 cups of mayonnaise.
~Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover.
~Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 - 30 minutes, or until tender.
~Drain, cool, cube and place in a large serving bowl.
~Mix eggs, celery, onions, relish, paprika, salt, pepper and celery seed.
~Add mayonnaise and mix well.
~Chill, covered, for about 2 hours before serving.
`Use Red Skinned potatoes and don't peel.
`Substitute Sweet Relish for Dill Relish.
`Use half mayonnaise and half sour cream.
`If you really don't like mayonnaise, try Miracle Whip although it will totally change the taste.
