  • potatoes without skin for us, but whatever you prefer
    celery
    onions (I don't like them so I don't add them, but if you like them, add them)
    hard boiled egg
    red bell pepper (sometimes - just for color)
    mustard
    miracle whip
    salt and pepper
    paprika on top

  • I hate mayo:
    French Potato Salad
    2 lbs (900 g) small red potatoes
    6 Tbs (90 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    4 Tbs (60 ml) red or white wine vinegar
    1 shallot, finely chopped
    2 Tbs (30 ml) chopped fresh parsley
    1 Tbs (15 ml) chopped fresh dill, mint, thyme, or tarragon
    1 Tbs (15 ml) Dijon mustard
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Drain, cut into slices, and place in a mixing bowl. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the potatoes, tossing gently to combine. Serve warm, chilled, or at room temperature.

    Note: Be sure to add the dressing while the potatoes are still warm so they can absorb the flavors.

  • New red potatoes, quartered and cooked. Add Ranch dressing, crispy, crumbled bacon, sliced green onions. Mix well, That's it. Season as desired, I usually do just salt and pepper.

  • I do 2 different recipes. One has more ingredients and takes more time to do all the cutting prep. The other is SO simple and really is my favorite out of the 2. I'll give ya both though.

    Potato salad

    10-15 potatoes ( boiled until fork tender)
    1-2 onions
    ½ celery bunch
    Pinch of celery seed
    ½ cup may
    1 tsp. horseradish
    Mustard to taste
    Sweet pickles chopped up (5 or so)
    Lawry’s seasoning salt
    Dash papirika
    Dash curry
    Salt pepper

    Top with 7 or more bacon slices cut up and sprinkled on top

  • This next one is my favorite!

    Texas Country Potato Salad

    4 strips bacon (I always use more!)
    1 pound small red potatoes, unpeeled
    1 green onion
    1 boiled egg, chopped
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon Dijonnaise
    Salt and pepper
    Cook bacon until crispy. Drain, reserving a few tablespoons of the grease, and crumble. Set aside.
    Place the potatoes in a pot. Cover with cold water. Add a tablespoon of the bacon grease and some salt and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and let the potatoes cool and then cut into bite-size pieces.
    In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, Dijonnaise, salt, and pepper for dressing.
    Toss potatoes, sliced green onion, and egg in dressing. Top withbacon. Serve chilled.
