SMASHED POTATO SALAD
3 lbs Idaho russet potatoes (don’t peel or slice)
salt to taste
3 large eggs, hard-boiled
½ cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs spicy brown mustard
1 Tbs granulated sugar
1 Tbs cider vinegar
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp paprika
1/3 cup finely chopped sweet pickles
1/3 cup minced scallions
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbs chopped roasted red bell peppers
2 tsp salt
1. Place potatoes in large pot with enough cold water to cover generously and a large pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then lower heat slightly to prevent boiling over, and partially cover. Cook until tender (35-40 min. for medium potatoes, or 45-55 min. for larger ones). Drain and let cool to room temperature.
2. Peel and finely chop eggs in a large bowl. Mash slightly with a fork. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and chill until needed.
3. Peel potatoes, cut into chunks, and put in a large bowl. Smash with fork or potato masher to a texture somewhere between mashed and chunky. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and stir until evenly combined. Cover and chill overnight.

GREAT potato salad. Very simple to make. Slightly sweet if you like that sort of salad.
