How to Make Simple plain Jane tasty potato salad


  1. peel the skins from the potatoes, cut into desired size cubes, add to mixing bowl,
  2. peel the shells from the hard boiled eggs, cut up and add to mixing bowl,
  3. peel onion and slice and slice a couple more times, sprinkling the onion pieces over the egg and potato mixture.
  4. add desired amount of miracle whip, mix gently, if garnishing cut hard boiled eggs width way, creating round circles, scatter the round circle egg pieces over the mixed salad and garnished with paprica.

    -I sometimes add a small amount of mustard and milk, milk seems to make it a little more creamier.
