If you are in the market of new cookware, I love my OUR PLACE SET- HERE perfect pots for boiling and so easy to clean!

  • Cook potatoes until they are fork tender, about 10 minutes. Watch closely and do not overcook or the potatoes will become mushy. Drain and set aside.

Absolutely, love these stainless steel VIKING BOWL SET HERE, they have non slip bottoms, nestle within one another for storage, and have lids that fit air tight on top of them. They are perfect for mixing, serving and storing your delicious eats in the kitchen.

I also love these stainless steel Measuring Cups & Measuring Spoons HERE -they store wonderfully as they nest within one another, are magnetic, and have color coded handles for easier measuring

  • Once eggs are done crack and slice them and add to potato salad.
  • Add potatoes and stir to coat completely. Fold in eggs, celery and green onions. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired. If desired, top with a few sliced eggs and a sprinkle of paprika.

Crazy Busy Mama Tip:

If you don't have fresh celery or onion on hand, feel free to use a substitute like onion powder and celery seed like I showed in tutorial. As a Crazy Busy Mama, I am always looking to use what I have on hand instead of going to the store to buy more. There is typically always a substitute for a missed ingredient. 

Ideally you will want to make this potato salad a day ahead so you can store in refrigerator overnight. If you didn't make ahead of time you need at least 4-6 hours in refrigerator prior to serving.
