Your Host, Brad
8 medium new potatoes
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 celery stalks, chopped fine
4 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
1 to 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
3 Tbl cider vinegar
2 Tbl dry mustard
3 Tbl sweet pickle relish
Boil the potatoes just until tender when pierced with a
fork. Drain, and as soon as you are able to handle them, peel and dice (we enjoy
our potato salad with the skin still on). Toss with the lemon juice, oil and salt to
taste. Let cool.
Add the pepper, celery and chopped eggs and toss
Combine 1 cup mayonnaise with vinegar, mustard and
relish; blend well then toss over the potato salad, gently folding until completely
coated. Add more mayonnaise as necessary.
Based on your individual taste, add chopped onions,
peppers, radishes and/or parsley.
