So I don't like potato salad and neither does my husband. In fact, neither of us like any mayonnaise based salad except tuna salad. I know he hates it, but sometimes when my friends are having a potluck, this just sounds good. I only like one kind of potato salad, and I only get a craving for it about once a year.
For 4th of July this year, my friends were having a BBQ. They made pulled pork and everyone else brought the side dishes. This is the only time of year when I felt that potato salad would not only be welcome, but delicious and desired. This was the one time of year that I wanted potato sald.
I only make one kind of potato salad. Actually, I take that back... I will make Japanese style potato salad from time to time. For the most part, I only make this one kind of potato salad. It's super savory and delicious from the grain mustard, dill and chopped egg. It's colorful and delicious and I love it.
Like most of my recipes, I don't have a real recipe. I just add things until they taste good.
- 3 lbs potatoes
- 1/2 bunch dill
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- grain mustard
- salt and pepper
- 1 red onion
- 4 ribs celery
- Cut potatoes into chunks and boil until cooked through. Drain and place in refrigerator until cool
- Dice red onion and celery. Chop the dill finely and cut the eggs into large pieces, setting one or two eggs aside for garnish.
- Mix onion, celery, eggs, dill, mustard, mayo, salt a pepper together. Mash some of the potatoes in between your fingers so you have large pieces and small pieces. Adjust seasoning to taste.
- Garnish the top with extra dill, paprika and chopped egg. Place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
