Old Fashioned Potato Salad


A few reviews

This is an amazing potato salad!! I’m feeding many people, so I increased up..did 5 lbs. of red potatoes and included the peelings of the potatoes in the mix. Also, I utilized yellow along with green onions. I doubled the ingredients. Accidentally, I bought the Walmart Sweet relish brand, and it was amazing tasting! A perfect amount of sweetness to the potato salad. I love this recipe. We have eaten many different potato salads, but this is without doubt the most delicious.

This is delicious! I used two tons of red potatoes cut into quarters, and I boiled them for the recommended time of 15 minutes. Add the eggs to the potatoes that were boiling and removed after 12 mins and chilled in the ice water. Removed the skins from the potatoes that had cooled, then returned to the boiling kettle and then chopped them with the eggs along with celery, red onion along with 1/2 cup red bell pepper. The dressing was made using a different bowl making the mayonnaise more than 3/4 cup, using an ample 1/2 cup of sweet pickle relish as well as an ample tablespoon Dijon crushed mustard. The remaining seasonings were prepared according to the recipe. Check the taste prior to adding mix of potatoes. If too dry, add more mayonnaise. It’s easy to prepare and clean up. Is my new favorite potato salad.

My mom also added diced pickles of dill in the potato salad she made. I follow the tradition and always enjoy my Pototo Salad. Many of them have begun adding pickles

My mom also added diced pickles with dill in her meatloaf, and I make exactly the same. Every single one of us

What is in Potato Salad?

The most delicious potato salads have a blend of textures and flavors, which is where tangy, creamy sweet, salty, soft, and crunchy combine perfectly. Here are the ingredients to this recipe for the best potato salad:


Potato salad isn’t a dish without potatoes. The recipe doesn’t mention the size of potatoes needed or the kindof potatoes to use, so you should choose medium-sized potatoes or enough to feed eight people. If you’re wondering the kind of potatoes you should make potato salad with I’ll discuss this in the following section.


Hard-boiled eggs are essential for this type of traditional potato salad. However, you can skip them in case you want to.


Celery provides a crunch to offset the soft texture and richness of the potatoes.


It is possible to use any type of onion you want, such as white, yellow and red ones. Cut the onion into small uniform pieces, so that nobody bites into a large chunk of onion that is still raw.
