My Favorite Southern Potato Salad Recipe

Southern Potato Salad

You know those recipes you call your mom for. This is one of those recipes. I grew up (in Eastern NC) on my grandmother’s Southern Potato Salad and for the longest time never had a true “recipe” She just tossed in ingredients and did the taste test. Asking my mother years ago, I scribbled down what she thought it was and tucked it away and never really made it myself. I just indulged excitingly at every family get together where it happened to be.

Then several years ago, my neighbor, here in NH, brought potato salad to a neighborhood party. She made Southern Potato Salad…in NH. What?! Happy dance! But again, she said she didn’t really measure. Just kind of threw in the ingredients, doing that taste testing again. Oy! That was about 2 years ago. I haven’t had potato salad in 2 years!

Well, last weekend, another neighbor and I were chatting and she said she was “craving” potato salad. That potato! And did I want to try to make it? Why yes! I do!

I did have to do the taste testing. But I did measure as I went. So I can now share it with her, and you and everyone else, this fabulous recipe for Southern Po-ta-to salad.

By the way, this is NOT on my “clean eating” list. This would be one of those I call the 20%-ers. Friday is my cheat day so you can count on it that I will be indulging extremely excitedly tonight!

Oh, I have a question. How do you like you potato salad? Warm or Cold? I like it warm. Is that weird?

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs of potatoes, peeled and diced

7 hard boiled eggs, chopped

1 cup of mayonnaise

1 tsp yellow mustard

4 TBSP of sweet pickle relish

Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

1. Place eggs in a pan covered with cold water. When the water starts to boil, reduce the to low and simmer uncovered for 1 minute . Remove from heat and COVER and let stand for 20 minutes.

2. Peel and dice the potatoes into about 1 inch pieces.

3. Cover them with water and bring them to a boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander.

4. Let the potatoes cool before mixing so they won’t crumble. I actually put mine in a bowl in the refrigerator for about an hour.

5. In a separate bowl, mix the other ingredients together.

6. Then add the potatoes and mix gently.

ENJOY!
