Potato Salad wars... the RECIPES!

OK, the lobster one doesn't *count* (although it's my favorite! yumyum )

 

 

This is how I make my potato salad:

 

~~~~~~~~

 

CAT'S POTATO SALAD

This is a "to taste" recipe... ends up as I happen to make it. In general, this is how I do it.

 

about 2 cups Miracle Whip salad dressing

1 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp celery seed OR celery salt

1 Tbsp (or more) sweet pickle juice

1 Tbsp prepared yellow mustard

(sometimes I add a bit of cider vinegar)

cooked potatoes, diced

boiled eggs, diced

chopped onions to taste

chopped sweet pickles

 

Mix the salad dressing, sugar, salt, celery seed, pickle juice, mustard, and vinegar (if using). Stir well and allow to sit until sugar and salt dissolve; mix well again. Adjust as you want for taste.

 

Combine the rest of the infgredients in a large bowl. Stir in dressing, mix well, and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Tastes better the next day when flavors mingle.

How do you make yours???

a blob of mayo

a couple of eggs (or not)

a dash of paparika

a scoop of sweet relish

a handful of onion

I have asked my mother for several of her recipes and this is about the way I get the recipes. Her comment is she never measures shrug

Both my husband and my father would disown me immediately if I ever let a sweet pickle come near my potato salad! So here's my recipe...

 

4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

4 hardboiled eggs, chopped

3 medium dill pickles, chopped

4 green onions, sliced

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 tablespoon brown mustard (such as Gulden's)

1/2 teaspoon celery seed

pinch salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

 

In a medium saucepan, simmer potatoes until just fork tender. Drain and rinse under cold water. Put in a bowl and add eggs, pickles, and onions (you can also add sliced celery if you want - I almost never have it on hand).

 

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, celery seed, salt and pepper. Stir thoroughly, taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Mix into potato mixture.

 

Refrigerate several hours or overnight to let the flavors meld.

 

I have a blog where I post lots of my recipes for a friend of mine, if anyone wants to take a look - http://kbeeps.blogspot.com

I think it goes along wth a pinch, a smidgeon, and a dash. Toe stumping is a little more than a dash and a sneeze is a little more than a dash.

Ok now...I like Sue's simple recipe...except I would use onions instead of shallots and skip the parsley...and I would have to clean my glasses off when reading "tatties"...I swear I read something else... eek
