Mom's Potato Salad
We were at a ward party and I had several people come up to me and ask me for the recipe. The funny thing is that I never follow a recipe. My mother never followed a recipe. So as I made this salad for our July 4th BBQ I thought I would put together a recipe. IT WAS HARD! That sounds weird but it was hard. Anyway, I eyeballed the onion and then measured it out into another bowl. Then I dumped the mayo into the first bowl and then measured it out into the bowl with onion. Then I measured and tasted until I think I got it down on paper! I make it a little on the salty side and then let it sit overnight or a few hours and the salty kind of absorbs and goes away.
I hope this works for you! Good luck.
My Mom's Potato Salad
12 medium sized potatoes boiled in their skin in salted water
12 hard boiled large eggs
1/4 cup finely minced onion
2 1/2 cups real mayo (I do not use light or miracle whip)
1 1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp, black pepper
1/4 tsp onion salt
3 Tbls. dill pickle juice
2 Tbls. milk
1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
Mix all the dressing together. It will taste salty but that is how you want it. Mix with the potatoes and eggs. Cover and let set in the refrigerator over night or several hours.
I sprinkle paprika over the top of it.
