We are having friends over tonight for a cook out and my Mom asked if I would make my Great Grandma’s Potato Salad. This recipe has been in our family for years. The only thing my Mom changed with the recipe is, she does not add celery & carrots, but you could if you like a little extra crunch. This is my Dad’s favorite and he requests it quite often, Mom always makes it for his Birthday and Father’s Day! Always make the salad in a bigger bowl then you think you need. The salad also tastes better after it sits in the fridge for a day.
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp vinegar
1 1/2 cups mayo
1 medium onion
Boil your potatoes till done. Boil eggs until hard boiled. After potatoes and eggs have cooled peel and cut up your potatoes into chunks then peel and dice the eggs reserving one hard boiled egg. Cut your onion into small pieces. Mix the mayo, sugar, and vinegar together in a small bowl. Add to the potatoes, eggs, and onion and mix until well blended. Taste salad you may need to add more of the mayo mixture, if so mix up half cup mayo, 1 tsp vinegar, and 1 tsp sugar. Once the salad has reach the taste and consistency you desire slice the hard boiled egg you reserved and lay on top. Lightly sprinkle top of salad with Paprika.
