Mom's Potato Salad

There is nothing quite as satisfying as a good potato salad.  Creamy, salty, crunchy and tender all at once.  My mom makes it with a lot of hard boiled egg, and a little vinegar gives it the zesty flavor that puts it over the top.

You will need:

10 medium russet potatoes, boiled with the skin on until soft, cooled and then peeled

1 small sweet onion, finely diced

3 celery stalks, cut into small square pieces

6 large eggs, hard boiled, then peeled and quartered

A splash of rice vinegar

1 small jar of mayonnaise

A sprinkle of paprika

Cut your potatoes into bite sized pieces.  In a large ceramic bowl, combine all of the ingredients, saving about 6-8 pieces of the hardboiled egg and the paprika.  When all ingredients are thoroughly mixed, top the mixture with the hardboiled egg pieces and sprinkle with the paprika.  A perfect companion to a hamburger, fried chicken or any sandwich.  Enjoy!


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
