4th of July potato salad

My mother in law invented this salad at her husband's sandwich shop in Boston Mass during WW2. Don't let the ingredients fool you. It looks so simple, but I have never served it that someone didn't ask me for the recipe.

1Boil potatoes until fork tender...chop into cubes 1/2 " .
Boil eggs until hard. Place in cold water unpeeled to remove shells easily. Chop finely.

2If you have a parsley cutter..slice parsley in fine pieces. Can use up to 1/2 cup of chopped parsley.

3Stir potatoes and Mayo together. Add eggs and rest of ingredients. refrigerate. voila !
I usually taste it the next day to see if it needs salt or Mayo. I just cut egg slices on top and a few parsley sprigs and a little paprika ( Hungarian).
that is it!
