    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 lbs idaho potatoes (peeled and diced)
    • 1 cup sweet onion (finely diced)
    • 1/2 cup celery (finely diced)
    • 6 large eggs (boiled, dice only 4 eggs for the salad and slice and save 2 for the top.)
    • 1/4 cup diced pimento (but adds color, it's not enough to add any flavor.) (optional)
    • 1 cup sweet gherkins (diced) or 1 cup relish (diced)
    • 1/4 cup yellow mustard (just for color, adds no flavor.)
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon pepper
    • 1 -1 1/2 cup Miracle Whip (depends on how thick you like it.)
    • 1 teaspoon paprika (for the top.)


    1. 1
      Boil potatoes until they are tender but firm, do not over cook or the salad will be like mashed potatoes.
    2. 2
      Drain potatoes immediately and let them cool completely.
    3. 3
      Add (to the cooled potatoes) all other ingredients.
    4. 4
      Toss lightly until thoroughly mixed making sure not to mash the potatoes.
    5. 5
      Top the salad with the sliced eggs and sprinkle with Paprika.
    6. 6
      We love it while it's still warm.
    7. 7
      Refrigerate if you like it cold for 2 hours.

      Just made this for the 4th celebration tomorrow, can't wait to unveil it. I upped the serving to 12 people, cooked a pound of thick sliced bacon, diced it, and sprinkled it over the sliced eggs on top.
      Very easy to prepare, I had small red potato's on hand so I just cut them in fours and boiled. It looks great and tastes great. Highly recommend!
