Potato Salad II

Recipe by  

"This is a good potato salad recipe for us folks who don't like onions. I really wanted to try a potato salad recipe, and they ALL had onion of some sort. By not putting any, I'd lose half the taste. Well, this may seem a silly recipe to some of you, but I love it and so does my brother!"

A little too plain for us. Ended up adding boiled eggs, bacon, and garlic powder.

I make a very similar type of potato salad. To add a little more flavor, I add bacon bits to mine. I despise onions, so I know I miss out on a lot of flavors in various recipes. But this is a wonderful variation. I brought it to a dinner once, and the part people complianed about was the Miracle Whip(I personally love the stuff). there were no complaints about lack of onions. :)

Yay, no onions! Glad there are more out there like me who hate potato salad most of the time because of the little onion surprises in it. I do agree with those who prefer mayo and add hard boiled eggs and a shot of prepared mustard to the mixture.

I grew uo on this. My grandmother added hard boiled eggs, bacon, and celery. Also she used 1/2 helmans and 1/2 miracle whip. On the top paprika sprinkled on it adds a nice flavor.

This is how I end up making my potato salad also, except I add pickle relish to add a bit of flavor. I also add hard boiled eggs and cheddar cheese.

Potatoes and mayonniase alone make for a fast, inexpensive meal....Although, you might want to spend the extra buck and add some flavor and nutritional value to it.

I make this same recipe, but I add 2 or 3 chopped hard-boiled eggs to mine. You can use half Miracle Whip/half mayo if you are serving to non-Miracle Whip enthusiasts (like myself). Yum!
