Potato Salad


potato salad

I had to make some potato salad this past weekend. Just felt the need! My Mom gave me this recipe when I got home from Germany (not a family recipe, not sure where she found it). I was pregnant with Offspring2, and this was all I wanted to eat. Cravings are funny things! (With Offspring1, I craved Doritos, with Offspring3, it was Olive Garden all you can eat salad with house dressing.)

Originally, I liked that the recipe was for a small batch of potato salad. Now, I figure I am making the mess, I might as well make a big batch (and 2 of the 3 offspring give it a thumbs up). I used a 5 pound bag of Yukon Gold potatoes, and tripled the list of other ingredients.

Potato Salad

  • 4 cups of diced cooked potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • black pepper to taste

Have a great day!
