Whenever I’m in the deli section of a grocery store, I often wonder why anyone would purchase “store-bought” potato salad. It’s so easy to make and so much better tasting. This past weekend we attended our annual Rocky Mountain Triumph Club’s Spring Car Show. We pulled out our cooler and filled it with crispy fried chicken and our home-made potato salad and away we went. Not only did we eat well at our cute little picnic table and folding chairs but, we took home 1st Place for our 1968 Triumph TR250 and Best of Show!!!
I never really measure the ingredients for my potato salad so bear with my as I’m trying to figure out the exact measurements for you.
2 lbs red potatoes
1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
Couple stalks of celery, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon celery seed
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
Boil the potatoes with the skin on till cooked, remove from water (you can peel them or if you prefer the skins on, your preference) cut into small squares. Add all ingredients together once the potatoes have cooled. At this point, taste the potato salad to see if you need to add more salt, celery seed or any other ingredient. Voila!! It’s that simple and really delicious. Bon Appetit!
