Move it!

We're moving. Therefore, I've not been menu-ing and that will continue for a few more days. But to tide you over, here is my new favorite recipe for potato salad.....

10 average sized potatoes, diced bite sized 3/4 TBLS prepared mustard
4 eggs, hard boiled 1 cup mayonnaise
4 stalks of celery 1 white onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped small 1 tsp white sugar
Red wine vinegar salt and pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm, about 15-20 minutes. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl. While still very hot, sprinkle with salt and toss with red wine vinegar. (I used about 1 1/2 TBLS)

Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover completely with cold water. Bring to a boil. Cover, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 17 minutes. Remove from hot water and peel under cold, running water. Chop and set aside.

Stir the eggs, celery, bell pepper, mustard, mayonnaise, onion and white sugar into the potatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving.
