Ingredients

Homemade Mayonnaise:

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes and the kosher salt in an 8-quart pot and fill it with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring the water to a gentle boil and cook the potatoes until tender. Drain. Peel the potatoes while they are still warm and slice them 1/2-inch thick.
  2. Whisk together the mayonnaise, evaporated milk, vinegar, mustard, and sugar in a small bowl. In a large bowl, combine 1/3 of the potatoes, eggs, onion, and celery with about 1/3 of the mayonnaise mixture. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, combining them 1/3 at a time until they are well mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then garnish with paprika and chives.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
