Potato Salad

  • Boiled potatoes – generally one medium or large per person
  • 1 hard boiled egg – per person – for a large crowd ½ egg per person
  • Cut up sweet pickles – to taste
  • Green onion – to taste
  • Miracle Whip salad dressing thinned down with sweet pickle juice and add a little prepared mustard.

I learned to make potato salad by watching my mom make it. I will add some more direction here. Peel the potatoes and cut into quarters. Cover and boil in salted water. When tender, drain off the water and put the pot back on a low burner to dry out the potatoes. Then just start adding "stuff". I have also used baked potatoes or red potatoes and added different things like celery, yellow or purple onions, Mrs. Dash seasoning, etc. That is the beauty of potato salad. Each batch is unique.
