Diane Larson


2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
4 hard boiled eggs, cut into chunks
1/2 cup dill pickles - chopped
1/2 cup celery - chopped
1/2 onion - chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp vinegar
salt - to taste
pepper - to taste
white pepper (optional)

Cook potatoes until fork tender. Drain. Add remaining ingredients, except paprika. White pepper will add a little bit of "bite" if used. Stir well, the warm potatoes will mush up a little; this is what you want to happen. Sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate. Best if refrigerated at least 2 hours to overnight.

Other optional add-ins:
Banana Peppers or Peperoncini
fresh Parsley or Cilantro
Sweet Red Peppers

While this is not Grandma Young's exact recipe, I did get my inspiration from her. She made the absolute best potato salad!
