After 26 years of eating this potato salad, I finally broke my gram down enough for her to give me the recipe!! :D This is the best and ONLY potato salad that I will eat. It's definitely one that needs to be made ahead so that the flavors can combine. Enjoy!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 lbs potatoes, cubed i prefer them peeled but you can leave the skins if you like the flavor
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 12 small onion, chopped

  • salt and pepper


  1. Boil potatoes until tender, drain and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl fold potatoes with veggies, eggs, seasonings.
  3. Gently mix in mayo until everything is well dressed, this may take the whole cup sometimes not.
