  1. Set up your mise en place. That means getting everything together. You'll need a medium-sized bowl, a rubber spatula, a medium saucepan (big enough for the potatoes), three knives, a fork, vegetable peeler, 1/4 teaspoon, and 1 cup.
  2. Clean and boil the potatoes until al dente (almost done), meaning they fork tender, but the center is still a little solid. Drain, peel, dice, and add to bowl.
  3. Peel and dice eggs and pickles, and add to bowl.
  4. Add mayo to bowl, mixing well. Add salt, pepper, and paprika and mix well. The paprika should give salad nice orange-ish coloring. Chill, serve, and enjoy!
