I’m truly shocked how excited you guys were when I posted my Mom’s Potato Salad on my stories last night 😂 I mean I love potato salad don’t get me wrong, but I thought it was more of a controversial dish… like 50% of people love it and 50% of people hate it. Anyway, pretty sure 100% of people will love this one. Anything my mom makes is a 10/10 🙌🏼 It’s even better the next day in my opinion.
My Mom’s Potato Salad
- 3 lbs small red potatoes
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup Best Food’s or Hellman’s mayonnaise any works, but my mom insists on these brands
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup green onion chopped
- 1/2 cup celery minced
- 1/4 red onion minced
- 1 tbsp fresh dill
- 1/2 tsp salt + more for boiling potatoes
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp paprika
Fill a large pot with water and add the potatoes and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are soft, about 10-15 minutes. Drain and let cool. Cut them into small chunks and place in a large bowl in the fridge (or don’t if you like it warm!).
Place eggs in a large pot and fill with cold water to cover by at least an inch. Bring to a boil, cover and remove from heat. After 10 minutes, place the eggs in an ice bath for an additional 10 minutes to cool and stop the cooking process. Peel then dice and add to the potatoes.In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients then add to the potatoes and eggs. Stir well to combine then top with a dash of paprika and sliced eggs if you want it to look ~fancy.~ Serve warm, room temp or refrigerate for a couple hours and serve cold.
