A great potato salad that will satisfy even the pickiest potato salad eater. The prep the day before is the key to this great flavored side dish.


-- Potato Prep (day before) --
5 pounds Potatoes; cooked, peeled, and diced small
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Onion salt
1/2 teaspoon Garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Onion; (medium)
-- Additional ingredients --
2/3 cup Celery; diced small
8 Eggs; hard-boiled, peeled and chopped
Green onion; (optional)
-- Dressing --
2 cup Miracle Whip
3 teaspoon Mustard
1/4 cup Sugar
2 tablespoon White Vinegar
2/3 cup milk

Original recipe makes 12



Put a layer of potatoes in a large pan and sprinkle with half of the salts, pepper, and onions. Repeat a second layer, using the remainder of the potatoes, salts, pepper, and onion. Cover and let stand at least four hours (overnight gives it an even better flavor). The next day, stir in the hard boiled eggs and celery and make the dressing. Prepare the dressing by whisking together the Miracle Whip, mustard, sugar, vinegar, and milk. Mix thoroughly and pour onto the potatoes. Stir until the potatoes are saturated. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving. If desired, garnish with tops of green onions.
