Picnic Potato Salad

This is the recipe for my picnic potato salad. It's as easy to prepare as 1, 2, 3, and 4 ingredients plus salt and pepper to taste. I recommend red potatoes because they tend to remain firm as they cook.

4 cups diced red potatoes
3 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
2 tablespoons sweet relish
salt and pepper to taste

Boil 3 eggs until done. Peel and chop real fine. This way there's no large chunks of egg whites in the salad. Set aside.

Cover potatoes with water and boil for 18-20 minutes. Potatoes should be done, yet still firm. Drain water from potatoes. Add eggs, salad dressing, relish, salt, and pepper and mix together.

Mama likes to add 2-3 tablespoons chopped onions. Again, chop it real fine so there's no large chunks of onions in the salad.

Yields 4-6 servings and can be served hot or cold.
