Potato Salad

Tomorrow marks the first official day of summer and nothing says summer like homemade potato salad.  My Grandma Hill used to make the best potato salad ever, but I never knew her recipe.  So I keep trying new recipes to try and find one that's close to hers.  Here is the newest recipe I have tried:

Garden Potato Salad

6 large potatoes (about 3 pounds), cooked, peeled and cubed
4 hard-cooked eggs, sliced or chopped
2 celery ribs, diced (optional)
6 green onions with tops, sliced
6 radishes, sliced (optional)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mayonnaise

In a large bowl, combine potatoes, eggs, celery, green onions, radishes, salt and pepper; set aside.  For dressing, combine eggs, vinegar, sugar, ground mustard and salt in a saucepan.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened.  Cool.  Stir in mayonnaise; mix well.  Pour over potato mixture; toss to coat.  Refrigerate for several hours before serving.

I sprinkled with paprika.  I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it's going to be delicious.  Enjoy!
