This was my mother’s recipe, just the way she passed it on to me. You’ll have to be your own judge about actual amounts–I encourage you to taste as you go.
PLEASE NOTE: In the podcast, I boil the eggs and then let them sit, covered, for 11 minutes. You will do better to let them sit for 12-13 minutes.
Also, in the podcast, I use my mother’s method for boiling the potatoes, but I found they weren’t done enough. Rather than boiling them for 10 minutes, I recommend boiling them for 15 minutes, and then letting them sit in the hot water, uncovered, till the water is cool enough to fish the potatoes out by hand.
For a more traditional potato salad, try this.
