Mom's Potato Salad

My version.

6 large potatoes -- cleaned
6 large eggs -- hard boiled and cooled
2 stalks celery -- chopped
1 whole green pepper -- chopped
1/2 cup dill pickles -- chopped
3/4 cup miracle Whip®
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 tablespoon pickle juice
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon paprika
pinch sugar
seasoning salt and pepper -- to taste

Boil the potatoes with their skins on for about 20 minutes at a very gentle boil. Drain and let cool. Peel and cube up into desired size pieces.

Halve the eggs, removing the egg yolks. Chop whites and add to potatoes along with celery, pickles, and pepper.

In a small bowl, mash egg yolks. Add miracle whip, mustard, pickle juice, and seasonings. Mix well and pour over salad. Stir to combine- taste for seasoning, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

** You may need to add more miracle whip, depending on how much the potatoes absorb.

**Add any additional seasonings you would like, as well as any other vegetables (green onions, olives, etc).
