Farmhouse Potato Salad

With the 'girls' working extra hard these last few weeks, we have an abundance of eggs!
Here is one of my favorite ways to use them up.
~
Farmhouse Potato Salad
~
Boil 8-10 small/medium sized potatoes
Peeled and cubed
~
1 doz. boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
(Of course, I only use our chickens' eggs. They are only fed organic feed and have free range.)
~
1/2 pint of your favorite dill pickles, chopped
(I use my home canned dills. I will share the recipe and canning instructions during canning season.)
~
1/2 sweet onion, diced
~
1 - 1 1/2 cups Mayonnaise
(depending on how moist you like yours)
~
Mix all together in a large bowl.
Salt and pepper to taste.
~
I always sprinkle Paprika on top
('cuz that's how Grandma used to do it!)
I don't know that it adds any flavor
but it looks pretty!

Perfect for your next picnic!

Thank you so much for this! My mom sprinkled paprika on top too, for colour too. My daughter doesn't like eggs in potato salad but I do. I may just make this and keep it in the fridge for my own personal consumption!
