Old Fashioned Potato Salad
A creamy, flavorful, Old Fashioned Potato Salad made with potatoes, eggs, mayo, mustard, sweet relish, celery, and spices. Perfect for the upcoming cook-outs, picnics and summer parties. This traditional potato salad reminds me of the one I grew up on.
When summer approaches here in WV, this is a recipe that I find myself frequently making. This is the perfect side for burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, steaks, chops, and ribs.
It is cool, full of flavor, and easy to transport to parties. Make this recipe a day ahead of time for the flavors to blend. Bacon, ham chunks, and even chopped up rotissere chicken breast can be added to make it more like a main entree instead of just a side dish.
I use red skin potatoes or russet potatoes. If you are going to add bacon, the red skin ones really work the best. This is a more colorful potato salad.
Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a large bowl. Add the potatoes to the dressing and carefully fold to combine all ingredients well. Transfer to a dish with a lid and chill.
Old Fashioned Potato Salad is the perfect side to serve for Memorial Day and Fourth of July. I am also making it for a graduation party this week.
This recipe can be doubled for a larger crowd. My husband and I are empty nesters, so I also created a scaled down recipe for this potato salad.
