perfect potato salad

My husband loves my potato salad…finally.  After years of trying to use my moms recipe…she has never written it down or measured ingredients.  I finally decided to try my hand at my own recipe.  My husband will send me sweet texts about my potato salad.  It makes me smile and beam with pride.

I bake the potatoes instead of boiling them because I don’t like how the potatoes are soggy after boiling.

I always mix the wet ingredients and seasonings together and then add the potatoes, celery, and red onion in.  After I mix all the ingredients together I sprinkle the top with sweet paprika and mix it in.
