Mom's Potato Salad

We went to an awesome pool party Saturday night (thanks Shane and Rochelle)! I brought a potato salad and there were some requests to put the recipe on my blog. I am not sure what the real recipe is... or if one even exists. This is just my mom's potato salad I remember her making growing up. I will do my best guess at measurements. Keep in mind you can add more ingredients that you really like or omit anything you don't.... and this quantity will feed a huge group!

Potato Salad
5 lbs. potatoes (boil them whole until you can poke a fork through them then peel and cut them into about 1 inch cubes)
10 boiled eggs chopped or crumbled
1 - 2 cups chopped celery
16 oz. cooked, crumbled bacon
1/4 c -1/3 c. chopped green onions maybe a little more if you really like them
1 small container of mayo. (I think it's like 1 1/2 cups)
1-2 T. yellow mustard
1/4 c. white vinegar
1 T paprika
1 t. garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste.
So then just put all your salad ingredients together, mix the mayo. mustard, vinegar, paprika garlic salt and salt and pepper together, pour over the top; mix everything all up and chill it for a little while before you're gonna eat!
ENJOY!
