Potato Salad was a must-have side dish for every picnic and barbecue. My Mother made THE BEST potato salad ever and I can replicate it pretty well. There are no measurements, just a ‘pinch of this and a pinch of that’ type of preparation. When my Mother made it, she used onions from the garden and eggs from our farm.
My Potato Salad is pretty darn good, but you can never top what Mom could do!
Boiled, peeled and cubed potatoes
Boiled, peeled and chopped eggs
chopped green onions (or sweet white onion)
celery seed (or chopped celery)
- Mix together potatoes, eggs, onions (and celery if desired). Sprinkle with celery seed.
- In separate bowl, mix mayonnaise with enough milk to thin to consistency of salad dressing. Add sugar and salt to taste.
