This is an adaption of my mother's potato salad recipe. To be honest, I don't know that I really ever measure everything out, but when I decided to write it down, I did measure it out. I suppose this is one of those eternal arguments, like sugar in corn bread--mustard or not? Mustard, of course. The other key is to mix everything together while the potatoes are still warm. —susan259
potatoes, I like red skinned
mayonnaise (or more, to taste)--use Hellmans or Best Foods
chopped white or yellow onion--I like 1014 or Vidalia
white vinegar (ESSENTIAL!)
salt and pepper to taste
hardboiled eggs-chop the whites and mash the yolks
dried dill (to taste)
In This Recipe
Wash and cook potatoes till just soft. I like them with the skins on, but peel them if you must. Don't overcook or you'll have potato mush.
Drain water and place pan and potatoes back on heat and cook a few minutes longer, shaking pan, to remove excess water.
Let potatoes cool enough so you can handle them. Cut them into bite-sized cubes.
Mix warm potatoes and rest of ingredients till well coated and well distributed. Refrigerate till cold.
