3 to 3-1/2 pounds potatoes (about 10 medium)
6 hard-boiled large eggs
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup evaporated milk
3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Additional hard-boiled large eggs, sliced
1 In a large kettle, cook potatoes in boiling salted water until tender. Drain and cool. Peel potatoes; cut into chunks. Separate egg yolks from whites. Set yolks aside. Chop whites and add to potatoes with onion. 2 In a small bowl, mash yolks. Stir in mayonnaise, milk, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour over potatoes; toss well. Adjust seasonings if necessary. Spoon into a serving bowl. Garnish with egg slices and paprika. Chill until serving. Yield: 12 servings.
Test Kitchen Tips •To prevent potatoes from mushing out and losing their shape, add a small amount of vinegar to their cooking water: 1/2 teaspoon is plenty.
•For salads, we find that firm and flavorful Yukon Golds, new potatoes and redskin potatoes yield great results. Starchier russet potatoes can work, but they tend to fall apart.
•The beautiful thing about this type of salad is that it's very easy to customize. Start with half the amounts of ingredients such as sugar, mustard and vinegar, then adjust levels to your personal taste.
