In my family, a party will not be complete if there's no salads. Two kinds of salad should always be prepared aside from the main dishes made out of fish, other seafoods, meat (beef and pork) and chicken.
This potato salad recipe is very easy to do and the color combination makes the dish attractive and appealing.
6 strips of Bacon (fried and cut into tiny pieces)
2 kilos (4.4lbs) yukon gold or red potatoes (boiled and cut into bite size pieces)
1 dozen boiled eggs
1 bunch of green onions cut into tiny pieces (reserve 1/3 for garnish)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4c dill pickles
2 tsp. salt (more depending on your taste)
1 tsp. pepper (you can add more per your taste)
1tsp. sugar ( add more per your taste)
dash of sweet paprika for garnish
In a bowl, combine potatoes, green onions and eight boiled eggs (cut into bite size pieces). In a small bowl mix mayonnaise, pickles, mustard, salt, pepper and sugar. Incorporate mayonnaise mixture to your potatoes mixture. Taste if the mayonnaise mixture is to your liking (should be a little salty and a little sweet) if not add salt, pepper and sugar till you get the right combination that you want.
Cut the remaining eggs (four eggs) into four pieces each. Garnish top of your potato salad with the pieces of bacon, eggs, green onions and paprika.
Then sit back, enjoy your wine, good company and wait for the compliments the guests will surely say about your potato salad.
