Southern Potato Salad

Last week, the youth group at Christ United Methodist Church had a fundraising supper to help defray the costs of upcoming activities.  Parents of the youth were asked to prepare food to be served that evening.  I volunteered to make 10 pounds of potato salad...sounds like a big chore, but it's not really.  It's not much different from just making enough for a family.  Anyway, I thought that I'd try to write down the recipe since it was passed on to me by my sweet mama, and not in written form....I learned to make it by making here goes...

Southern Potato Salad
(for a large group)
10 lb. white potatoes
1 dozen boiled eggs
Dukes mayonnaise
yellow mustard
pickle relish
onion powder
salt and pepper

Peel and wash 10 lb. of white potatoes.

Dice the potatoes into bite-size pieces.

Put potatoes in a large pot, and cover with cold, salted water.

Bring the water to a boil, and then allow the potatoes to gently simmer for about 15 minutes.

Drain potatoes in a colander.

When the potatoes are well drained, put them into a large bowl with chopped, boiled eggs.

Add the mayonnaise, mustard, pickle relish, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Gently mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

Sprinkle with paprika.  Cover and chill until ready to serve.
