Potato salads are perfect to serve in a party!


2 lbs red potatoes (1 kg)
1 red onion
1 cup shredded carrots (85 g)
2 hard boiled eggs
2 stalks of celery

1 cup mayonnaise
3 TBS white vinegar (45 ml)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1. Cut potatoes in half and boil in salted water for about 20 minutes. The potatoes should be soft enough to be poked with a fork, yet still firm. Drain the water and let potatoes cool.

2. After potatoes are coo enough to handle, peel the skins, and cut potatoes into chunk. Transfer to a large bowl.

3. Finely chop red onion to make 1/2 cup (85 g), celery stalks, and hard boiled eggs. Transfer to the bowl with potatoes.

4. Make the dressing. In a separate bowl, whisk all ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Pour over the bowl of salad, and gently toss. Let the salad rest for about 30 minutes.

**Adding finely chopped parsley is also delicious!**
