So thankful for this recipe! it has all the same ingredients I use for a potato salad, but I have to make enough for a small wedding and was so unsure how to do that!
I have been eating, and making, this type of potato salad since I met my husband 44 years ago. The only difference is we add some dill pickle juice to the mayonnaise mixture before adding it to the potatoes, eggs and green onions. My mother-in-law always used 5 pounds of red potatoes, one dozen eggs and close to two bunches of green onions (green parts only). The mayo-mustard, salt and pepper were never measured. I followed your recipe using 5 pounds of potato but added a lot more mustard than listed (I USED TWO TABLESPOONS, AS WE LIKE IT TO HAVE SOME ZIP). IT WAS FANTASTIC! I CAN NOW DUPLICATE THE TASTE EVERY TIME.
Even as a mustard style potato salad preferrer, I rate this mayo style pot. Salad an A+. I made this for a serving of 3. I just adjusted the serving size on the recipe, & cooked potatoes only for 12 min vs 20. It turned out delicious!
OMG! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! I made this for my daughter's graduation party - what a hit!!!! I got so many compliments! My hubby & father-in-law both said "it's better than grandma's"! I also added a little celery for a crunch & extra color...green onions are a must (added about 5-6, mostly the green ends)!! I didn't quite measure all the salt/pepper, also added a smidge more mustard because it seemed really mayo-ey when I tried the sauce. **to anyone who has a hard time cooking potatoes perfectly (I always made them too mushy), a trick my mother-in-law taught me is to boil them with the skins on just until a fork can penetrate without too much force, then put them in the fridge for a bit to cool, peel and dice. I am tossing any other potato salad recipes I have as I will use this one ALL the time. ;o]
Great recipe! I've used it mor than a few times.
This recipe is a life saver for parties. Super easy, and super yummy! It was so good I was asked to cater a friends outdoor wedding! (And everyone loved it!)
Excellent potato salad!
This is a real good base. You can adventure out from it and it still taste great. I added a little miracle whip and doubled the eggs
