Contest-Winning Grandma's Potato Salad Recipe

Many people have told me this is the best potato salad they have ever tasted! This recipe really represents the Midwest to me, because when our summers begin, no outdoor get-together is complete unless it includes potato salad.

  • 10 pounds salad potatoes, cooked, peeled and cubed
  • 12 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 5 radishes, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup milk

  • Minced fresh parsley
