A simple potato salad that features potatoes and hardboiled eggs. I also used parsley and chives from my garden. The dressing can be made with all mayo, or like I did, with Greek yogurt. I like this potato salad. Its one of my favorites.

Ingredients

Potatoes 1 1/2 Pound
Eggs 3 , hardboiled
Mayonnaise 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Yogurt 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Greek Yogurt)
Dijon mustard 1 Tablespoon

Maple syrup 1 Tablespoon
Salt 3/4 Teaspoon
Paprika 1 Dash
Onion powder 1 Dash (to taste)
Garlic powder 1 Dash (to taste)
Parsley 1/2 Tablespoon (fresh, chopped)
Chives 1 Tablespoon (chopped)

Directions

Getting Ready:

1. Heat water in a pot until boiling, place potatoes in a steamer and steam potatoes, until soft. Cool.

2. If you do not already have hard boiled eggs, you can use the following instructions to do so:

Ingredients:

-eggs

-water

Instructions:

-Bring water to a boil, covered

3. When done cooking, cool potatoes and eggs (separately) under cold water.

Making:

1. Combine dressing ingredients as the potatoes and eggs cool.

2. Peel and dice the potatoes and eggs and add enough dressing (add a bit more if the salad won't be served right away).

3. Combine with dressing, gently stirring to blend ingredients

Serving:

1. Serve immediately at room temperature or chill and serve within a day or two.

2. This salad is especially good served with homemade hamburgers, on homemade buns, with chips and homemade salsa on the side.
