Begin by boiling the potatoes until tender. Allow them to cool before cubing.
In a large bowl, combine the boiled and cubed potatoes, chopped hard-boiled eggs, chopped celery, and finely diced red onion.
In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, mustard, and sweet pickle relish to create the creamy dressing.
Gently fold the creamy dressing into the potato mixture until well combined.
Season the potato salad with salt and pepper to taste, ensuring a balanced flavor.
Refrigerate the potato salad for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld and develop.
Before serving, sprinkle paprika on top for a touch of color and flavor. Enjoy the authentic taste of Southern Potato Salad.
