Potato Salad

The other night I made potato salad.  This is another one of my “signature” dishes I am asked to bring to get togethers.  It’s made very similar to my macaroni salad.  It is a great side dish for any meal really.  I like to have it when we are having Italian Sausage, Hot Dogs, Burgers, and Fish.

This is my mother’s favorite meal at our house!!

 

5 lbs of potatoes boiled, peeled and cubed (Boil until soft, run immediately under cold water and remove skin and cube)

1 cup salad dressing (I use Miracle Whip)

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3 Tablespoons Mustard

1/4 cup finely diced onion

1/4 cup finely diced celery

3 hard boiled eggs cut up with yolk

salt/pepper to taste

Paprika sprinkled on top before serving

When potatoes are cubed add the rest of the ingredients and stir gently.  Refrigerate for atleast 4 hours or overnight is best!!

You can add more salad dressing if you want a moister salad.  You can omit onions, add pickles or whatever you would like to jazz it up.  I like it as I made it above!!

 

Wildflower Garden

My wildflower garden is in bloom finally!!!  I love checking everyday to see what new is blooming in there.  I let this garden grow crazy instead of keeping it in nice organized condition.  THIS IS VERY HARD FOR ME with my personality but the man of the house enjoys this crazy look so I try to appease him.  There are orange lillies in there but they are hard to see.  Pretty landscaping adds charm to a house I think.
