  1. Peel the potatoes and chop them in half. Rinse the potatoes. Add them to a large pot and cover with cold water.

  2. Set stovetop temperature to medium-high heat.

  3. Bring the potatoes to a rolling boil. Cook for 20 -25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

  4. Check the potatoes with a fork. If you can pierce them, the potatoes are done.

  5. Using a strainer, drain the remaining water out of the pot with the potatoes and set aside.

  6. When the potatoes have cooled, add the eggs, celery, green onions, sweet relish, pimentos, light mayo and mustard. Mix the ingredients together with a large spoon.

  7. Add the salt and pepper and mix. Add additional salt and pepper if needed.

  8. Pour the potato salad into a large bowl or serving dish (I prefer a Tupperware bowl with a lid).

  9. Add paprika for garnish and then refrigerate for an hour.

  10. Serve.
