Small Recipes... Taste of Home Potato Salad

The Taste of Home Down Home Cooking for One or Two has this recipe for Potato Salad for one. I am not a real fan of potato salad but thought it looked good and I had three small Yukon Gold potatoes to use up. I am happy to say it is quite good and while I will use less mustard next time it was a nice amount for one person. I had a small amount left over and will eat it for lunch tomorrow with a sandwich.
 I added a cubed hard boiled egg to it and some celery seed mainly because I like both in potato or pasta salads. If you have a recipe you really like you can use this recipe for a guideline on the amounts of ingredients for one. Or just add what you like to this recipe.
