Penny's Delicious No Pickle Potato Salad

This is the only potato salad I would eat as a child, because I didn't like pickles. The recipe is from my aunt. She uses garlic chive, which I have substituted by using the same amount of chive and a clove of garlic. I usually leave off the nasturtiums, but they add a nice *Zip* if you have them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and chop potatoes into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Boil or steam potatoes until just tender (should not immediately fall apart when you stick a fork in).
  3. Rinse in cold water to chill.
  4. Combine mayonnaise, mustard, thyme, salt and pepper, blend well and allow to rest at least 30 minutes (while potatoes are cooking).
  5. In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients (except garnish), adding more mayonnaise if necessary.
  6. Garnish with egg slices.
  7. Chill salad (tastes best a day after you make it).
  8. Before serving, sprinkle with bacon bits and nasturtium blossoms.
