Exceptional! I use 1 Tablespoon prepared brown spicy mustard instead of ground mustard, and added 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
This was so delicious! I made it for my family and some guests for a barbeque and half of it was eaten the night before! It was creamy but didn't have too much vinegar that a lot of potato salads have. I am making this potato salad from now on.
I made this on 4/18/09 use as a side to go with brats my SO and I were having.Since there was just the two of us,the recipe was cut in half. This is how it was made,4 potatoes,3 eggs, 1/4 cup onion,and left out the celery. ( we don't like it ).For the mayo 3/4 cup was used,1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1 Tablespoon sugar.And since SO doesn't do too much vinegar, that was cut down to maybe 1/2 teaspoon.I did make it the day before as suggested,but we thought that it needed a bit more " zip "Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
Awesome!! I've tried lots of recipes but now I've found the one I've been searching for.
Toadi How did you get my grandmother's Potato Salad recipe ;>) I mash up and blend the cooked yolks in with your mayonnaise mix. Add a real nice yelow color. I also ad some zip with a relish made from Dill pickles. Zowie ! yodar
This recipe is similar to one I use as well. I think its the sugar that makes all the difference. One variation I make and it usually just depends if I have it on hand but I like to use a red bell pepper as well. I think it gives it that extra added zip! Great recipe!
Yes, this is the good old classic American potato salad. You can't go wrong with this. I must say I liked the mustard powder in this rather than prepared mustard. Thanx for posting a great classic!
