My Favorite Potato Salad

I waded through hundreds of potato salad recipes to see if this recipe was already posted -- no! The potatoes are cooked, then marinated in an italian dressing mixture for extra flavor. Not sure where this came from -- could have been a cookbook I had early in the 1980's.

Directions

  1. Boil 1" of salted water in a sauce pot. Add whole potatoes. Boil, reduce heat. Cover pot and cook until tender 30-35 minutes. Drain and cool.
  2. Prepare italian dressing mixture. Cut potatoes into cubes or slices. Stir in onion, italian dressing, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, mustard, bacon, celery, and optional ingredients. (This can be done ahead of time and refrigerated).
  4. Just before serving, drain potatoes if necessary. Toss potatoes with mayonnaise mixture. Gently stir in eggs. Sprinkle with paprika.
