This salad came to us from a visit one summer day to my brother John. He fixed a feed for us, and his roommate, whose name is forgotten, made a Potato Salad that was simple, yet very taste. It is a cold potato salad.
You can’t go wrong with this potato salad dish for your next summer barbecue or gathering. It’s simple to whip up and may be prepared in advance.
Since mayonnaise is the main ingredient in the dressing, high-quality mayonnaise is essential. Duke’s is the brand I prefer to use. Boiled eggs are called for in this recipe as well, and they give the salad a wonderful, creamy texture.
How to Achieve Success
The following items are required for this tasty potato salad recipe.
Six Medium Potatoes
One-half cup of mayonnaise
a half a cup of sour cream
vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and a pinch and a quarter of black pepper in tablespoons
Half a cup of chopped celery One-fourth of a cup of chopped onion Three chopped hard-boiled eggs
When the potatoes are done cooking, drain them and add them to the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl. Always do a taste test before finalizing the seasoning. The temperature at which you serve it is up to you. Enjoy!
First, get the potatoes boiling. Depending on your personal inclination, you can either eat them with the skin on or remove it. After they are done cooking, drain them and put them somewhere cool to chill.
Dice the other ingredients as the potatoes cool. Everything from celery and onions to pickles and hard-boiled eggs are included.
Combine the chopped ingredients with the dressing of your choice in a large bowl. You can use store-bought dressing, but we recommend making a basic vinaigrette using olive oil and vinegar.
Taste the salad to see if more salt or pepper is needed, then serve. Then store in the fridge until ready to serve, covered. Enjoy!
The best part about making a potato salad is the endless possibilities for personalization. Some alternatives are listed below.

How to Make the Perfect Meal
There are a few of tried-and-true techniques for producing the perfect potato salad. To begin, when preparing a salad, always use waxy potatoes. When cooked, these potatoes retain their firm texture and flavor.
The second step is to season and prevent the potatoes from sticking together while cooking by cooking them in salted water. Third, toss the salad with the dressing while the potatoes are still warm for optimal flavor. Use plenty of fresh herbs. The recipe would benefit greatly from the addition of some fresh herbs to liven up the flavor.
