Trisha Yearwood's Potato Salad

I don't know if I blogged about this or not, but my wonderful, wonderful mother-in-law brought me Trisha Yearwood's new cookbook, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen - and it's signed! With a picture of Trisha Yearwood and my mother-in-law. It's awesome. :)
So, I finally got around to making the potato salad out of said cookbook for 4th of July. I made it the night before. I think potato salad just gets better the longer it sits.
The recipe is very basic, but very good! I know this is a sin - but I don't have a picture! I did take a few, but they didn't turn out. It just looked like a yellow blob. Ugh - sorry!

Trisha Yearwood's Potato Salad
Serves 12
5 lbs. red potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2 in. cubes
2 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and diced
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. sweet pickle relish
black pepper
2 tbsp. pimento, drained
2 tbsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. paprika

1. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan. Add 2 tsp. salt and enough water to cover the potatoes.
2. Boil the potatoes for 30 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with the point of a knife but hold their shape.
(I definitely did not cook them for this long. Probably only 20ish minutes.)
3. Drain the potatoes, transfer them to a large mixing bowl, and allow them to cool completely.
4. Add the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, sweet relish, pimento, mustard, paprika, sugar and salt & pepper. old gently to combine.
5. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
