although I did not use red potatoes- this recipe was NOT the best, and it DID lack in a LOT of ways... good BASE... but not much more.
to start- making it easier is to chop the potatoes into chunks and then boil. definitely cool... CRUCIAL! the eggs were on par, but I already had some boiled. BUT... THE EGG COUNT IS TOOOO MUCH! even making half the recipe- TOO MANY EGGS! Start with 1-3 and add more as needed. I would also recommend adding the rest of the 'dressing/seasoning' ingredients as needed. the full amount of some is terribly overpowering! there is also NO paprika mentioned... a TRUE potato salad has paprika... AND MUSTARD. add in a little bit of chopped green onion for a kick, but this is just a standard recipe that lacks what a REAL potato salad with what ensures people say, "WOW- THAT WAS GOOD!"
I added a bit of mustard, a touch of garlic powder, a small bit of diced sweet(or dill) pickles, less egg, less mayo, more pepper, some paprika and a bit of shredded carrot & pimentos, diced.
if you want it simple- skip the garnish and just add the mayo, mustard & seasonings to desired taste. add extra garnish for a kick. but this is NOT a 5 star... this needs work and not just the basic ingredients. sorry. I had to modify this to meet expectations. the recipe, as written, is the equality of less than store-bought value.
