There are many different types of potato salad out there, this is how I make mine.
8 large potatoes
1 bunch of radishes (or small bag)
1/4 cup bacon bits (real or simulated)
6-8 heaping tablespoons whipped dressing (like Miracle Whip)
Hard boil the eggs, drain and then refrigerate them to cool down.
Peel the potatoes and cut into chunks. Boil the potatoes until soft, but not mushy (you should be able to stab them with a fork easily). Drain them and rinse with cold water. When drained put them in a medium sized bowl and refrigerate to cool them down.
Remove leaves and stems from the radishes, wash them and slice them very thinly. I usually cut the radishes in half lengthwise and then slice them. Peel the eggs and wash all the shell off them carefully. Slice the eggs the same way you sliced the radishes, but not as thinly.
In the bowl of cooked potatoes, add the radish and egg slices. Pour in the bacon bits and mix. Add the whipped dressing and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate further to cool it down more if need be.
