Potato Salad

on June 5, 2014

OK, this sounds too common place and it has not been modified since I changed my lifestyle but I have gotten so many compliments on my potato salad that I thought I would share… or maybe I should keep it a secret… HMMM.  I have always claimed that this is my mother-in-law’s recipe but she visited recently and said it most definitely is not her recipe and that it is better than hers.  What a compliment.  But I will still give credit where credit is due. She did teach me to make potato salad and her recipe has heavily influenced my recipe.


Before trying this recipe, I will give you fair warning.  You may also find it requested frequently by friends and family, so beware!  Here is the recipe-enjoy!

Potato Salad


4 russet potatoes

4 hard boiled eggs, peeled

1/2 can olives

1/2 Cup chopped dill pickles (I love Claussen)

1/2 Cup chopped  onion

1 Tbsp chopped garlic

1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

1 Tbsp Mustard

1 tsp Salt



1. Chop and boil potatoes until potatoes can easily be pierced with a fork but are not mushy. Drain well, place in large bowl, keep in refrigerator to cool them down.

2. Drain olives, reserving about 2 Tbsp juice,  Chop olives pickle onions and egg whites.  Add all chopped ingredients to bowl with potatoes

3. Combine egg yolks with reserved olive juice and about 2 Tbsp pickle juice, mix until yolks are creamy.

4. Add garlic, mayo, mustard and salt to yolk mixture. Mix well.  Mixture should be runny – about the consistency of heavy cream – and tastes salty.

4. Pour egg yolk mixture over the potato mixture.  Stir until well coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
