Old Fashioned Potato Salad


1.5 pounds new potatoes

2 stalks celery, chopped

6 eggs, hard boiled

1/2-3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp paprika


Bring a large pot of water (with a pinch of salt) to a boil on the stove. Peel your potatoes and slice them uniformly (making sure all slices are about the same thickness as to ensure even cooking). Add potatoes to water and cook for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. A fork should easily go through them when poked. Be careful not to overcook them to mush though! You want them to still keep their shape so you can then chop them for the salad.

When potatoes are finished cooking, drain and set aside to cool. Chop your hard boiled eggs and place in a large bowl with the celery. Once cool, roughly chop cooked potatoes and add them to the bowl as well. Add mayonnaise, salt, pepper and paprika and toss well to combine.

Serve chilled with an extra sprinkle of paprika on top.
