Recipe Monday – Potato Salad

One of my all-time favorite summer sides is potato salad. It goes with any meat entree, especially grilled, and it is delicious with a sandwich. My daughter recently asked for my Potato Salad recipe and she said it was a big hit with all her roommates. Maybe your family would also enjoy it.

Potato Salad

5 large potatoes
3 boiled eggs, peeled and cut up
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1/2-3/4 cup sweet pickles cubed or sweet pickle relish
1/4 – 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoon sweet pickle juice
salt and pepper to taste

Cut up potatoes in small pieces. You may peel the potatoes prior to cutting up or leave peel on, your choice. Cover with cold water and 2 teaspoons salt. Boil for 15-20 minutes. Drain. Let potatoes cool. I run cool water over them to stop any further softening and drain in the colander. Add onion, pickles, eggs, mayonnaise, pickle juice, salt and pepper. Mix gently with the potatoes. Cool in refrigerator 1-2 hours before serving. Before serving I sprinkle Paprika on top to just “pretty it up”. ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. The only thing you & I do differently is I don't add onions. I add small diced apple pieces. Sounds good right about now! See what you've started. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You are making me sooooooooo hungry. Dinner won't be ready for another 30 minutes!!

  3. It's a classic! Yummmmm!!!!
