Gram’s Potato Salad

There are several recipes I have picked up from my mother that I have not yet found one that can rival it.  Her potato salad is one of them.  Today, I took the time to measure out how much I put in for the ingredients.  I’m the toss it in type.  I rarely measure.  And this one I’ve learned by watching, there is not recipe.  It’s mostly based on the cook’s taste.  So remember as you go, you may want to add a little more or less to your liking.dsc_0066Toss the potatoes and eggs in a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.  Test by poking with a fork to make sure they are done. My potatoes are medium sized and took about 20 minutes to get tender.dsc_0069Drain, peel, and dice to bite size pieces and toss in a bowl.  How do you like my purple potatoes?  I love the color they give.  We grew these in our garden this year.dsc_0070Add diced cucumber.dsc_0077Relish, mustard, pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, and celery salt.  Stir together well!dsc_0080Yum!  Doesn’t it look great!  Tastes good too.  🙂
