Everyone's favorite Potato Salad

Since it is the start of the summer season, Julianne and I thought it would be fun to post some recipes that are great to take to all of our fun summer outings. The first one is Everyone's Favorite Potato Salad. This is my Mother's recipe. She made it quite often when I was growing up. She took it to family reunions, barbecues, birthday parties etc. Since I got married, I have also taken it to many parties etc. It is always a crowd pleaser! It is rare to have leftovers! This is truly the best potato salad I have ever eaten!

Everyone's Favorite Potato Salad

4 quart sauce pan of boiled potatoes (12-18 small potatoes)
14 boiled eggs (peeled)(set 3 aside for decoration on top)
2 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder
3/4 tsp. season salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 C. milk
A few shakes of Paprika


1.Cut potatoes and eggs into small cubes. Put in large bowl. Cover and set in refrigerator while you prepare dressing. (set aside 2 or 3 eggs to decorate the top of the salad with)

2.In medium sized bowl, whisk together all other ingredients except for the paprika.

3.Remove potato, egg mixture from refrigerator. Pour dressing mix into the potatoes and eggs. Stir thoroughly. Add a little milk if it isn't moist enough.

4. Slice the eggs that you set aside and place neatly on top of the salad.

5.Sprinkle paprika on top of salad.

*Note: It is very important to keep potato salad cold! Here are two ideas that are helpful in keeping it at a cool temperature:
1. Set your bowl of salad in a bowl of ice.

2.If you are taking a large bowl to a party, Put the salad in the refrigerator, taking out small amounts as needed. This will ensure that it doesn't warm up enough to get bacteria in it.
