One of my favorite side dishes for summertime would definitely be a cool creamy potato salad. There's just somethin about it that goes perfectly with anything thats grilled, smoked, or barbecued. With the weather gettin warmer around here, I decided to try my hand at makin the perfect potato salad. I took a chance at a recipe I found but made some "tweaks" for my taste. The finished product is hands down some of the easiest to make and the best tasting 'tater salad I've made. Y'all try it and decide for yourself!
1. Boil peeled and diced potatoes in salted water until done.
2. Drain and set aside to cool to room temperature.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the mayo, cider vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and relish (with juice!); stir well and place in fridge.
4. Once potatoes are cooled to room temp, put in a large bowl and add the minced onion.
5. Chop the hard boiled eggs to desired size and add to potatoes and onions; toss.
6. Remove cooled mixture from fridge and pour into potato bowl; toss until evenly coated.
7. Garnish with paprika if you desire.
8. Place back in fridge to chill until supper time and enjoy!!
**Im not a fan of celery, but if you would like to add some to your salad, you could add about two ribs (diced).
***Instead of chopping the boiled eggs by knife, I used a potato masher. Simply push the eggs thru the holes of the masher! :)
