Potato salad is a great summer recipe, and a wonderful side dish to many meals. Here is a basic potato salad recipe from our kitchen. It is one of my youngest son’s favorite recipes.

Ingredients:

6 potatoes, halved
4 hard boiled eggs
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
Paprika

  1. In a medium pot, boil potatoes until tender.
  2. Put potatoes in refrigerator until cool.
  3. Peel potatoes and cube them.
  4. Place cubed potatoes into a medium bowl.
  5. Peel off shell of hard boiled eggs.
  6. Chop eggs and add them to potatoes, and mix.
  7. Add chopped onion to mixture, and mix.
  8. Add mayo to mixture, and mix well.
  9. Sprinkle Paprika over the top of salad.

Tips:

  • Spices can be very expensive. Sometimes paprika can be found at dollar stores for a better price than at the grocery store.
  • Store brand mayonnaise tastes very good.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Other vegetables can be added to this salad. My mother sometimes adds tomatoes and cucumbers to hers.
  • Serve this as a side dish with cheeseburgers and corn on the cob.
  • My youngest sometimes eats the salad with no main dish.
