Boil some red or gold taters, be careful not to turn into mush.
Put in ice water to cool and stop cooking.
Cook up some bacon crispy style set aside
Cut potatoes into cubes and put in large bowl
Add a bunch of mayo a little mustard and a splash of Worcester sauce.
Throw in some relish, chopped hard boiled eggs, diced bacon, diced onion.
Sprinkle in some salt, pepper, and paprika.
Mix all together with hands.
Lick hands clean. Add more mustard or mayo to taste.
Once done take and slice a few hard boiled eggs into disks and place on top. Sprinkle with paprika.
I have been making tater salad for years. I have never once put my taters into ice water, nor actually cut them. Instead, I used a tater masher to mash them up just a little bit, that way you have some smooth taters and some chunky taters.
Then again, it is the way that my mom's family make it. Yours is almost the same as ours, minus the onions and bacon. My mom does not eat pork and I just don't really eat meat.
Up north it is called Amish Potato Salad because mustard is added. It looks odd when it is not yellow.
This is a great start and a great way to make it. Maybe I'll try to put the taters into cold water, and then chop them.
