Creamy Potato Salad

I have combined a couple of my favorite potato salad recipes to come up with this one. I use it for all the holidays.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes until just tender when poked with a fork, remove and drain.
  2. Place the potatoes into a large bowl & let cool to room temperature. (I like to mash about half of the potatoes then add them back in with the chunks).
  3. Cut the eggs in half then remove the yolks. Place the yolks into a small bowl used for mixing.
  4. Add the egg whites & pickles (if using) to a food processor then chop until finely diced. Stir into the potatoes.
  5. Gently mash the yolks with a fork then mix in the mayonnaise, mustard, pickle juice, cream, sugar & spices.
  6. Whisk until creamy then pour over potato mixture. Gently stir until the potatoes are coated with the mayo mixture.
  7. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Great potato salad! I used all of the suggested ingredients but less of the mayo, pickle juice and cream than indicated. I don't like my potato salad too wet. I also added a good handful of chopped italian parsley. Thanks for posting a recipe I'm sure I will make many times.

This potato salad is great! The only thing I changed was I added a can of chopped black olives. Yummo!

This is very similar to my potato salad recipe, but I add onions and some other seasonings. I enjoyed it as is, but DS thought that it was quite bland. I probably should have added the onions like the previous reviewer. Overall, this is a very enjoyable potato salad.
