classic potato salad [made it! Tasty. Did use 2 hardboiled eggs. Also added 1 tsp dijon mustard and a pinch of dill. This may be my new go-to recipe] Egg prep: bring a medium pot of water to a boil, add 1 ½ tablespoons of white vinegar, and gently add the whole eggs in with a slotted spoon being careful not to crack the shells. Boil rapidly for five minutes. Turn off heat, cover, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 15 minutes.
