Old Fashioned Potato Salad
5 lbs. all purpose potatoes
l large onion - peeled and diced
2 cups (or more) Hellmann's Mayonnaise
l/4 cup vinegar
l/4 cup oil
l/2 tsp. dry mustard
3 or 4 hard boiled eggs chopped
2 stalks celery - diced
2 Tbls. parsley - chopped
salt and pepper
Optional: l/2 cup sweet pickle relish


Boil potatoes in their skins until soft and you can pierce them with a fork.

While potatoes are boiling - dice
up the onion, celery, chop the parsely and hard-boil the eggs.

Note: For boiled eggs, put the eggs in a pan with cold water and bring to a boil. As soon as they boil, shut off the heat, cover and let stand 18 minutes and they are done. Immediately run them under cold water and the skins will slip right off!

When potatoes are done, cool them awhile and then peel them. Put them into a pot and pour over the vinegar and oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.

Add the chopped parsley, diced celery, diced onion, relish, dry mustard, chopped hard-boiled eggs and the Mayonnaise.

Mix thoroughly. If too dry add more Mayo.

Arrange nicely in a pan and garnish with parsley and sprinkle with paprika.
