Mom's Potato Salad

Mom's Potato Salad
Here it is folks, that summertime salad of old! Mom doesn't really have amount for the potatoes and other things so you will have to "eyeball it". I love that this salad has a sweetness in it. The perfect blend of flavors.

1-2 Potatoes per person, quartered
Celery, diced
Onion, diced
Eggs, 1 per person, diced
Sweet pickles, diced (or about 1/4c. of sweet relish)

3/4 c. Miracle Whip (you can substitute Mayo but don't use Lite!)
1-2 TBSP Mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1 TBSP white vinegar
celery seed OR celery salt to taste

Boil Potatoes 15min. boiled (15min. will make this the equivalent of "al dente" in the pasta world) then drain
Boil Eggs 10min. drain and freeze in ice water
Dice potatoes, eggs, celery, onion and sweet pickles then put in large bowl.
Mix sauce together then add to potato mixture. Chill in fridge.
