I was looking for a good potato salad recipe. So I was looking and this great recipe caught my eye. I made it on 4th of July and everyone couldn't stop talking about and asking about. I will be making it soon again.
This is a great recipe! I have been making potato salad for 40 years, I thought this recipe looked interesting so I gave it a try, I made my own dill pickle relish from pickles I recently canned, the potato salad is refreshing and flavorful, will be making it again soon!
First homemade potato salad I've ever made. It was perfect. Personally, I would have used a half onion, but it didn't stop me or my family from having seconds.
Turned out perfect! My whole family loved it!!
This recipe was good. A little more crunch than your average potato salad. My family liked it.
so 2 stalks of celery is way too much and the cook would rather use 2 ribs of celery. Do you buy large or huge celery. 2 stalks of celery is PERFECT
I have used this basic recipe for years. However... if I made potato salad w/ 4 cups of potatoes my husband would NOT be happy. I actually start w/ 5# of potatoes! (some has to go to my Dad and my friend , who swears she can't make it like mine!) I put the eggs in an egg slicer and add them that way b/c we like the eggs in larger pieces. As you stir, they break apart more anyway. I don't use celery seed, I finely chop celery and add to taste. Also, I add a splash of cider vinegar and a little sugar to the sauce. It adds a sweetness and zip at the same time. My Dad was a Wash DC firefighter; this was his recipe and firefighters like good food! I have a friend who uses this recipe but uses sour pickles finely chopped. I never heard of them but they add a different, but very good taste for those of you who don't want the sweetness of sweet pickle relish.
I always mash my eggs instead of chopping them as I dont like whole piece of boiled eggs in the salad.
My family has always made potato salad like this without the dill pickle& just one stalk of celery.Everywhere I take this salad people love it,we don't mash or use alot of mustard this is the real way it should be made,we add one other small ingrediant that tops it off-just a dash of garlic salt & it's perfect.Glad to know we are not the only ones that make this type of salad!If you want a change (like the red potato Idea!) red sweet onion is also good in it.
This turned out great, left out the relish and added finely diced onion. To the poster below, German potato salad does not have a mayo base, this is normal american potato salad, will make again
