Potato Salad

About once a year I get really hungry for the potato salad we used to make in the summer at home. And with the grilling season here it's a great as a side dish.

This was also standard fare at funeral meals when I was growing up. It's a tasty tried and true recipe. I love the crunch the celery adds to the tangy sweetness of the salad.

6 cups shoestring potatoes
7 hard boiled eggs
2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 cup celery, diced

1½ cups Miracle Whip
3 Tablespoons prepared mustard
¼ cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt

Bake potatoes and cool completely. Remove the skins and shred along with the hard boiled eggs. Add the celery and onion.

In a separate bowl mix the dressing ingredients and pour over potato mixture. Stir with a rubber spatula until evenly mixed.

Happy Weekend to everyone!
