Really Good Potato Salad
This recipe has been a favorite of mine for years. Very basic, but the result is amazing! Try it out at your next BBQ or potluck!
Spaghetti Potato Salad
5-6 white rose potatoes
1 cup spaghetti noodles, broken into 1-2 inch pieces
4 hard boiled eggs
1 cup diced celery
1 cup finely chopped onions
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice (added to the mayo)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
*Wash the potatoes and place in a large pot filled with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. (Cooking time may be more or less, depending on size of the potatoes, so check them often!)
*In the mean time, bring a medium saucepan of water to boil and cook the pasta 8-10 minutes. Drain the pasta and set aside.
*Chop the celery and onions and set aside.
*Peel the hard boiled eggs (I usually make these in advance to save time) and chop.
*Once the potatoes are done, put them into an ice bath and let cool. Then peel and chop the potatoes and put in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
