Theres nothing worse then a dry potato salad with a bunch of weird thigs in it. Which is why this one is so dang good.
Cut the 4lbs of potatoes in to four slices each (leave skins on)
Boil 4lbs of potatoes with skins on (add salt)
Cook until done (don't cook to long you don't want it to turn into mashed potatoes
At this time start cooking your eggs
Not all the potatoes cook at the same time, so test them, as they get done pull them out and put them on a cutting board.
The best way to cook the eggs is as follow
Lay all 12 eggs at the bottom of the pot, make sure they are set in a way they wont roll around while boiling, so they don't crack (i would recommend cooking like 2 or 3 extra eggs just in case any do brake while cooking)
Cover the eggs with water. Don't put in to much water you don't want the eggs bouncing around, just enough to fully cover the eggs
Now sprinkle with salt then get the eggs and water to a full boil.
Once the water is boiling, turn the burner off, put the lid on the pot, leave it there, now set your timer for 20 minutes.
Walk away and leave the lid on for 20 minutes
While you are waiting for this to cook fill a bowl full of Ice water
Once the 20 minutes is up put all the eggs into the ice water. This helps the shell come off easier.
Leave for about 5/10 minutes and then you can start to peel
Once all the potatoes are done cooking put them in the fridge to cool down
Now in a large bowl start cutting the eggs in to chuncks (Leave two eggs out for top)
Now cut up the 4 whole pickles in to chunks and add that to the bowl with the eggs
Now get all the potatoes, cut them up into chuncks, then add them to the bowl with the eggs
Mix all together
Now add the 1 qt Miricle Whip and mix together well
Add your 1/4 cup of milk, stir together well
Then add Mustard to taste
Add a little salt to taste ( remember you can always add more but never take out so just a little bit at a time)
Now pour it all into your cute Easter bowl
Slice the last two eggs and nicely place them around the top of your salad
and lastly add your color by sprinkling paprika lightly all over the top
Congrats Your Ready To Eat!
