Mama’s Potato Salad

July/August 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (68 votes)

Tossed with mayo, celery, hard-boiled eggs, onion and relish, this is one of the most simple and traditional potato salad recipes around. Sprinkling the still-warm potatoes with vinegar infuses them with more flavor than if you had added the vinegar to the dressing.

Just right

I just made this today to share with my family. I'm a BIG fan. The few alterations I made were not adding onion (just not for me), adding one less egg (dang, 3 is all I had), and adding about a tablespoon of spicy brown mustard (makes it extra zippy - not sure I'd add it again next time). Overall I'm very pleased, this is like my mom's potato salad, which is the only way I like it :)

step by step instructions, healthy substitutions
Fast and Easy!

This was great! To make it healthier I substituted 1 cup of the mayo for 1 cup of plain greek yogurt and you couldn't tell the difference! However, I would cut back on the amount of onion they recommend adding. Way too much!
