Happy 4th! Make Potato Salad!

This is Tom's favorite potato salad and it's on the menu for tonight along with ribs and marinated cucumbers.  The ingredients are rather approximate so use your own judgement and taste.  This one is easy and ingredients are almost always on hand.

6 to 8 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 2 inch cubes
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
6 thinly sliced green onions
About 1 cup mayo (you may need more)
A couple of squirts of yellow mustard
Lots of salt and pepper to taste
Sweet Hungarian paprika

Boil the potatoes in water until fork tender.  Drain and place in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk the mayo and mustard together and add some of it to the potatoes, stirring away and sort of mashing a few of the potatoes.
Add the sliced green onions and some salt and pepper and then add more of the mustard mayo mixture.
Gently fold in the eggs, re season and add more of the mustard mayo. If your salad seems too dry, just add more mayo.
Place in a serving bowl and chill.  When ready to serve, sprinkle with a little sweet Hungarian paprika.
