grandma’s potato salad recipe
My grandma had the best potato salad recipe. Sadly I didn’t get the recipe from her, but I knew what went into it. After playing with ingredients, I was able to recreate her old fashioned potato salad recipe or got it pretty close.
Our family enjoyed this recipe during family reunions. She would make a huge bowl full (think like for a huge crowd). And we would enjoy this while visiting with family at the park.
6 cooked and peeled russet potatoes, diced
4 hard boiled eggs, crumbled into pieces
1 small sweet onion, finely diced
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sugar
how to make old fashioned potato salad
If you hadn’t already, the potatoes should be boiled in water (with the skin on) and once a fork goes in easily, cool and then peel.
Boil the eggs and peel and allow to cool.
Once cooled, peel and dice the potato into 1/2″ cubes.
Place into a 20+ cup bowl (you’ll need the space to stir)
You can use a chopper to chop the eggs, celery and onion
Mix into the potatoes.
Mix the mustard, sugar and mayonnaise together.
Pour into the potato mixture and stir thoroughly.
The potatoes should be coated thoroughly.
Keep in the fridge until you are ready to eat.
