C.j.'s Dill Pickle and Olive Potato Salad

Total Time
1hr 20mins
Prep 1 hr
Cook 20 mins

A different twist on potato salad - more kosher dill, olive and parsley flavors than mayo. NOT the typical sweet standard. My Dad, C.J., made this ever since I can remember. A family favorite - no reunion is complete without it! TIP: Slightly undercook the potatoes. If mushy, they don't chop well nor hold their texture. Also, add the olive and pickle juice sparingly to taste. Secret to this dish is NOT TOO WET!!!


  1. Boil potatoes. Cool and peel. Chop into 1/4 inch thick small pieces.
  2. Hard boil eggs. Cool and peel. Chop into 1/4 thick small pieces.
  3. Chop fine: parsley, celery, green onions, white onion, garlic, Kosher dills, olives with pimentos.
  4. Mix all ingredients.
  5. Season to taste with olive juice, pickle juice, splash of white vinegar, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
