Classic Potato Salad Recipe

Easy & Delicious Potato Salad.

Potato salad is an easy dish to make and makes a hearty side dish. It is best served cold and doesn’t require too many ingredients and keeps well in the fridge. Here is a classic recipe.

Required ingredients:

  • 1.5 kg or 3 lb. Yukon potatoes
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 4 green onions (mince white parts and slice the greens finely)
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper (use a pepper mill and grind for freshness)
  • ¾ cup full strength or lite mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream – optional
  • Hard-boiled eggs (chopped)
  • Celery
  • Pickles
  • A bit of parsley and chives
  • Red onion – optional
  • 1 tbsp. mustard paste

Step-by-step instructions:

1.      Cook the potatoes in salted water. Add enough salt to enhance the flavor of the potatoes. Simmer and don’t cook on high heat. Once they are done, drain water and let them cool. Alternately, you can put potatoes in an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

2.      Sprinkle vinegar over the cooked potatoes. This enhances the flavor of the dish.

3.      Mix sour cream, mustard and mayo in a bowl. Set aside.

4.      Run the red onion under water to remove pungency. Chop finely. Do the same for celery and herbs.
