This is just a simple potato salad. This is basically how my mom always made it. I have just tweaked it a bit to suit my tastes.


1 small red onion, chopped
3 large hard boiled eggs, chopped
2 large potatoes- I prefer Yukon Gold but will also use Russets.
Approximately 1/3 cup mayonnaise
1-2 Tablespoons mustard
salt and pepper to taste

For variety cook and crumble 2 slices bacon

Peel and cube the potatoes. Cook in a pot of lightly salted water til tender. Drain and cool. Do not rinse them off.
In a bowl add the potatoes, chopped onion, and chopped egg.
Add mayonnaise and mustard. Blend in. If it seems dry add more mayonnaise, just a little bit at a time. Salt and pepper to taste. Now is the time to stir in the bacon if you intend to add it.
Let meld for at least a few hours for best taste.
