    Julesong's Note:

    My family would crowd into the kitchen to get their first forkfull of Mom's potato salad. It's that good! This potato salad is not at all sweet - something which was important for our family. Let it sit in the fridge as long as you can before serving... it's even better the next day!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Steam potatoes with skin on.
    2. 2
      Mix together all ingredients except potatoes.
    3. 3
      When potatoes are done, cut (it's up to you whether or not you want to leave the skins on) while still warm and fold together with the mayo mixture - it makes it taste better to combine while warm.
    4. 4
      Put into serving container and garnish.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate for at least three hours before serving (the longer the better).
    6. 6
      This potato salad is even better then next day!
    7. 7
      Note from Julie: I use the dried minced onion because I like their texture, omit the celery, and add about 1/4 tsp of both curry powder and dried mustard... but don't tell Mom. ;)

      This is almost identical to the potato salad I make and it's awesome. The only things I do differently is to add celery seed to taste and a small amount of prepared mustard and sweet Gherkin pickles instead of dill pickles. I don't use dill weed, I may have to try it.
