Ingredients:

  • 6 medium white potatoes with skins intact
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and chopped

Boil potatoes in a large pot filled with enough water to cover. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain, and set aside to cool.

While potatoes are cooking, hand beat 2 eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a saucepan. Stir in vinegar, milk, and mustard.
