I made this potato salad today, and I have been trying to find a recipe similar to my mother-in laws potato salad recipe, look no further, I have found it!!!! I don't like gerkins so I left them out, but very easy to make. My husband will be so happy that I have perfected his mother's potato salad! Very tasty!
Had these 2 nights ago for a family barbecue, (my son in law loves Potato Salad) I didnt leave the jackets on the potatoes just boiled the normal way. The pickle added gave this salad the 'right' zip. Thanks for posting. =)
This is wonderful! I don''t like eggs, so I left those out and instead of pickles I used sweet relish. Thank you for sharing this recipe!! :)
and by the way, if you run cool water over the potatoes after you remove them from the boiling water they will stop cooking. don't just "let the m sit on the counter" that's stupid
Yummy.. I will sending in a pic of this potato salad. Yum !! I will be making this again.. Tara
this recipe was absolutely delicious, i used mayo instead of miracle whip and 1 1/2 cups mayo and 1 1/2 cups sour cream! wow
I made this for the superbowl to go along with smoked ribs. This is the best potato salad i've had. Everybody loved it. The bad part was there was not enough leftovers for the next day. I will make this again and again. I did change the ingredients a little bit. I used kosher pickles since I didn't have gherkins.
This is good potato salad. I did have to change two things. 1. I used 1 cup miracle whip, that's all I had, and 2 cups mayo. 2. I had no gherkins so I used 6 baby sweet pickles. They are a little bigger than gherkins so I cut back. Everybody liked this salad and I will make again. Thanks
This was amazing! I did change it up a bit though. I used 2c Mayo since I am not a Miracle Whip person at all and didn't wanna chance it. I too mixed all the ingredients except the potatoes in a separate bowl then poured over the potatoes. I omitted the gherkins and used 1/2 of a very LARGE red onion. Awesome recipe, I will definitely be making this again and soon ;)
We wanted to try a potato salad that was a little different, but this was way too sweet for us with the pickles, sugar and Miracle Whip. We used the red onions as suggested and they were way to strong in flavor for the salad, which was disappointing. Thanks for sharing it with us though! Mike
