Basic Potato Salad
2 pounds new potatoes
1/2 pound mushrooms
3 green onions
3 stalks celery
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 hard-boiled eggs
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Salt, pepper
Cover potatoes in pan with cold water and bring to boil over high heat.
Cook until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, thinly slice mushrooms,
onions and celery and combine in mixing bowl. When potatoes are tender,
drain and halve or quarter potatoes, depending on size and add to bowl.
Sprinkle with vinegar. Cover and refrigerate. When cool, chop eggs and
add to bowl.
Add mustard and mayonnaise, and season to taste with salt and pepper,
mixing everything together gently.

Sounds good, Cookinghaus. I've never had potato salad with mushrooms, and that seems like a good addition.

Friend Wife makes a German-style potato salad we're partial too. It has no mayo, using a vinegar based sweet/sour dressing instead. And, of course, bacon.

If anyone wants it I'll post the recipe.
