    FloridaNative's Note:

    This is my 'evolutionary' potato salad recipe. I started making this when I was about 17 years old, and have changed ingredients over the years until it got to this point -- now, I like it just the way it is! My biggest change was once I was making this for a party and mistakenly put chili powder in instead of paprika. I got upset, but added the paprika anyway, and off we went. I got more compliments on my "messed up" potato salad than on any other occasion! And it tasted GOOD. So I stuck with it. Some of the measurements are approximate (mayo especially) as I just dump stuff in, stir it up, and taste it until it's right. And how wet you like your potato salad is a personal thing. I just KNOW when it's the right consistency for our family.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel potatoes, rinse, slice and cube. Place in boiling pot of water with salt and pepper to your taste. Boil 10-15 minutes, or until just tender when pierced with a fork.
    2. 2
      Remove from heat, drain, and cool potatoes.
    3. 3
      Peel and rinse HB eggs. Quarter, then coarsely chop in chunks. Set aside.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, add potatoes, celery, and eggs.
    5. 5
      Add mustard, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, chili powder, and paprika. Stir to blend.
    6. 6
      Taste test; add more mayo to your taste and sea salt and ground pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      Add chopped dill pickles last and stir to mix.
    8. 8
      Taste test again. Adjust mayo, salt and pepper if needed.
    9. 9
      NOTE: Additional mayonnaise can be added to get salad to desired consistency. I usually add a little "extra" as it seems to get absorbed by the potatoes and I don't like it dry.

      My goodness this is tasty. I wish all my 'errors' would result in something this good. I ended up doubling the chili powder and loved every bit of it. Made this for our annual New Years BBQ, and it was enjoyed by all. Thanks for a great recipe FN. This is going to be my 'go-to' potato salad. :) Thanks also for being such a wonderful Secret Santa. You sure spoiled me.
