Perfect Potato Salad
4 hard boiled eggs (*see footnote)
1 cup Miracle Whip, or less depending on how 'saucy' you want it
2 TBS mustard
1/2 cup chopped pickles + 2TBS pickle juice
1/2 cup sliced olives
1/4 cup chopped green onion (optional)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp celery seed
While potatoes and eggs are boiling, mix all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the eggs and potatoes in a bowl. When the potatoes and eggs have cooled, chop the eggs and add them to the potatoes. Add the Miracle Whip mixture to the eggs and potatoes and mix just until combined. Sprinkle paprika over top and chill until very cold.
* Want to know how to boil PERFECT eggs every time? place your eggs in the botton of a sauce pan, add enough water to cover the eggs about an inch above the tops with cold water. As soon as the water comes to a boil, cover with a lid, and turn off the heat. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for 15 minutes. If you do all this right, you'll get perfect boiled eggs!!
