ingredients

directions

  • Bring whole potatoes to a boil in a large covered pan. Boil for 25 minutes.
  • Drain potatoes well and peel while still warm.
  • Quarter and dice potatoes (I dice mine a little larger then what I'd like because they break down a bit in the mixing and become the perfect size)
  • Add potatoes to large salad bowl.
  • Add diced celery, onion and dill pickle.
  • Combine mayonnaise through salt in a small mixing bowl to make the perfect potato salad dressing.
  • Stir the dressing into the potato mixture.
  • Add chopped eggs.
  • Stir well.
  • Cover potato salad and place in the refrigerator for a good hour to allow the potatoes to meld with the flavors of the other ingredients. It will be worth the wait!

    I haven't put pickles in my potato salad for years. I swapped it out for bacon once and never went back, but we really enjoyed them again with this recipe. I guessed on the mayo and got a little too much for my taste, but I'll just be more careful next time. :) I did love how quickly this recipe came together and I was able to do it easily on a weeknight. Thanks for sharing, good2bdunn! Made & enjoyed for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2011. You've been adopted! :) http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=352458&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
