Ingredients:  
4 c diced cooked potatoes (I prefer the med. sized red skinned ones)
1.5 c sliced celery (I usually decrease this by about 1/2)
1/2 c sliced scallions or chopped onions
1/4 c sliced radishes (I think this contributes to the distinctiveness of this recipe)
2 T snipped parsley
3 hard-boiled eggs, 1 egg chopped plus 1 egg reserved for garnish
1 c mayonnaise (I always use Kraft Miracle Whip)
1 T vinegar (red-wine is OK)
2 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. celery seeds
1.5 to 2 tsp. salt (seems like a lot, but potatoes can be very bland)
1/8 tsp. pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Make a day ahead. Combine potatoes, eggs, vegetables in large bowl. Mix mayonaise, vinegar, seasonings together and pour over potato mixture. (You may not want to use all the dressing depending on how wet you like your potato salad.) Toss lightly to cover vegetables with dressing. Refrigerate. Serve garnished with additional sliced hard-boiled egg and radishes. Sprinkle with paprika.

This recipe comes from the Good Housekeeping cookbook my grandfather, George Saunders, gave my mom, Cynthia Saunders DiNardo when she got married.
