How to Make Patty's 1st Place Potato Salad


  1. Peel and boil the potatoes and boil and peel the eggs the night before to make sure they are cooled
    ( If the potatoes are warm when you cut them up
    your salad will be too mushy )
  2. The next day...Cut or chop up potatoes in small chunks smaller than bite size and chop up eggs
  3. dice celery and and onion very small
    (especially onion)
    Great carrots
    cut each Green Olive in half
  4. Mix in the Hellmann's Mayo, Mustard, Parm.cheese
    and spices
    Mix all together and chill
  5. I put a sliced egg on top and paprika and parsley to decorate and make it look nice
    Maybe even some grated carrot
