This is my version of great homemade potato salad! Feel free to make adjustments to your liking.


5 ea Red potatoes; peeled & chopped
3 ea Eggs; chopped
1/2 cup Celery; chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
3/4 cup JFG Mayonnaise; (or Miracle Whip, Light)
1/4 teaspoon Celery seed
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1 tablespoon Honey mustard; (or regular)

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



PREP TIME: 15 min COOK TIME: 24 min READY IN: 35-40 min

Place eggs in a medium saucepan; cover with cold water. Heat to boiling; reduce heat and allow to barely simmer about 15-17 minutes. Cool eggs under cold water a few seconds to stop cooking.

Meanwhile, peel potatoes, cut into cubes and place in saucepan with water. Cook over medium heat about 8 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender; drain.

Place the chopped eggs, celery and cooked potatoes in a large bowl. In another bowl combine the Miracle Whip, salt, pepper, honey mustard, paprika and sugar; add to potatoes, eggs and celery; mix well.

Sprinkle salad with paprika; cover and refrigerate.


I use Honey Mustard to add a bit of extra sweetness and red potatoes instead of russet because they don''t get mushy as easy as the other types.

I use Miracle Whip Light to save calories and Honey Mustard adds a bit of extra sweetness. I also use red potatoes instead of russet because they don't get mushy as easy as the other types. [I posted this recipe.]
