This is an excellent recipe and has many options to explore. I boiled the red skin potatoes and allowed them to cool overnight. I then diced them leaving the skin on and assembled the dish using roasted red peppers instead of pimentos and Dijon mustard. I did not have any paprika and substituted a Creole seasoning blend with rave reviews. Something I will put on list to make again.
Thanks Nita! I have been making this for a few years now and decided I should leave a rating... 5 STARS from me!! I always make it as directed and ALWAYS get wonderful complements!
I just made this earlier to go along with some BBQ pulled pork. I omitted several ingredients (Celery, Onion, Parsley, Celery salt/seed & Pimiento), used dijon mustard... And halved it. It was wonderful. I loved the hard boiled eggs and the paprika really added to it as well. This is a great recipe to use as a base... so you can add/remove items and its still good. =)
