My Simple Recipe for Potato Salad
I love potato salad. I usually purchased a quart of the classic dish from a deli store near us. However when I have the time, I will prepare the simplest but tasty potato salad according to the following recipe omitting the vinegar and using sweet relish in its place.
10 medium potatoes, cooked and diced
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar*
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 celery ribs, sliced
1 cup onion, minced
6 hard-boiled eggs
paprika or hot devil sauce
1 .Boil peeled potatoes in salted water until done. Cool to room temperature.
2. Place diced potatoes in large bowl.
3 Mix mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in another bowl.
4 Add to potatoes.
5 Add celery and onions and mix well.
6 Stir in eggs. Reserve one egg slice for decor on top of the dish,
7 Sprinkle a little paprika or hot devil sauce on top if you want it a little bit spicy.
* Omit the cider vinegar if you hate sour potato salad. Use instead sweet relish or sweet pickles (diced) Enjoy!
