This recipe is thanks to my helping out for the 4th- I'm not really an eater of traditional potato salad, so I probably would not have brought you a recipe otherwise, but I was assured by all present that it was really good. Let me show you- super simple.
|Here's your arsenal! Pretty simple, and colorful!|
|Chop potatoes and eggs, then mash roughly.|
|Add in your chopped veggies and mix well. (I forgot the pickles and added them later- just fine!)|
|Here are your seasonings and binder- change ratios to your taste.|
|Add your mayo and then your seasonings and mix well.|
|And finally, I added in the chopped pickled I forgot about earlier.|
Sorry I don't have a picture of the finished salad- it's pretty similar to the above, just mixed and with paprika sprinkled on top. People gobbled it right up before I could think of it!
Traditional Potato Salad
-Eggs, hard boiled and peeled
-Red onion, chopped
-Green onion, chopped
-Sweet pickles, chopped (or relish, whichever you prefer)
-Salt & Pepper
Chop potatoes and eggs once cool then mash roughly.
Mix in all of the other ingredients- using your own ratios and amounts to make it however you like it- don’t like something, don’t use it, and use more or less of ingredients depending on what you like. This is a really easy recipe to play around with the amounts of- just start slow with the mayo because that is almost impossible to fix.
Chill. Sprinkle with paprika to serve.
