Mama's Potato Salad!

Memorial Day is Just around the Corner!

Memorial Day Weekend is the time that we begin entertaining outside!  All the patriotic stuff comes out of storage and a red, white and blue summer begins!   This year, I'll be unveiling my newest cookbook in early June and it will  be all about having simple, enjoyable summers
... filled with friends, family and good food!

My mother made the best potato salad in the world!  Fortunately, my daughter and I have mastered her approach to this yummy batch of potatoes slathered in a perfect sweet and savory dressing!  Every family has their own recipe, but here's ours!

Boil 2 pounds of red skinned potatoes; cool them; peel them and slice them in thick pieces.    Boil 3 eggs;  cool them;  peel them and slice.  Slice a 1/2 cup of celery and another 1/2 cup of sweet onions.  Combine all these ingredients with
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise (we use Miracle Whip)
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 2 Tablespoons juice from sweet pickles
  • 2 Tablespoons mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill weed, chopped
The dressing ingredients are easily adjusted, if you like your potato salad a little more - or less moist.
