Salad



* Salad Recipe1

Potato Salad

4 to 5 pounds of red, white or yellow potatoes 6 hard cooked, boiled eggs teaspoons salt 3 green onions sliced fairly thin 1 cup mayonnaise cup sweet pickle relish 1 teaspoon yellow prepared mustard teaspoon black pepper Paprika

Cut potatoes in 2 inch chunks and boil potatoes until tender but not mushy.

Drain same and let cool.

I like to mash the potatoes as if I was to serve as mashed potatoes, but you can leave in chunks.

Add mayonnaise, salt, pepper, onions, pickle relish and mustard to potatoes.

Mix gently and add chopped eggs.

Sprinkle with paprika, cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
