Momma's Potato Salad

May 12, 2015

Author Notes: Nearly everyone has a favorite dish that their mother (or father, or guardian!) served growing up; a dish that makes them feel comforted, at home, safe. A dish that only tastes right when prepared by said caretaker. For me, it’s my momma’s potato salad.onetinyspark

Directions

  1. Boil the potatoes until tender (test with a fork). Then drain the potatoes and place them in a large mixing bowl. Set aside to cool.
  2. When the potatoes are cooled, add in the chopped onions and pickles, as well as the mayonnaise, salt, and pepper.
  3. Mix all of the ingredients together until well combined and add a little more mayo if you want it creamier (better!).
  4. Finally, transfer the potato salad to a serving bowl and garnish with the hard-boiled egg and tomato slices.
