How to Make Mom's Secret Patato Salad


  1. Boil Patatoes with skins on peal and dice later, peal with a sharp knife while sill warm. Boil eggs for 10 min once you see water start to boil start timing. This time will prevent eggs from turning green but get a good hard yoke. When eggs are done boiling drain and add to ice bath for easy pealing.
  2. While patatos and eggs are boiling prep other ingredients. In a large bowl place diced onion, pickels, and 1/4 & sliced radishes. After eggs have cooled dice into bowl then add Miracle Wip, Mustard & pickel juice. Mix gently so as not to break up eggs to much. After patatoes have cooled enough that you can handle them peal and dice into bowl. Mix well, add salt and pepper to taste. If it seams a little dry add a little more of the condiments and juice.
  3. For larger groups I add 1 egg for every 2 patatoes, same for pickels, 2 radishes and about a 1/4 more onion, add condiments to moisten well.
