Mom's Potato Salad

5 lbs potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2, 1/4 or cubed (boil potatoes in water and salt and drain,, don't over boil, when done, spread potatoes on cookie sheets to cool
Celery
1 large bag radishes
1 onion
1 dozen hard boiled eggs
(cucumbers optional, seeded,, I don't always add them)

Chop veggies and cut hard boiled eggs, add to a large bowl.  Add cooled, cubed potatoes, salt/pepper, little garlic powder and mix (if you have dill weed, you can sprinkle a little of this also).

Dressing:

Hellman's Mayo
Miracle Whip
Touch of mustard for color and a few dash of milk
Mix well with whisk or fork and add to potato salad.  Keep making  more dressing until potato salad is as creamy as you would like.  Careful on adding to much,, it will make the potato salad "cry" the next day! :)  I use more Hellman's then Miracle Whip. Sorry I don't measure.

Sprinkle salad with parsley and paprika, you can slice some hard boiled eggs and add them to the top.  You may have to add more salt and pepper,, keep tasting!
