Potato Salad

jul2015 111It is that time of year when everyone has friends and families over for BBQ after BBQ.  Sometimes you will either be asked to bring a side dish or simply want to contribute somehow. There are tons of different side dishes or trays that you can bring to a social gathering. I want to recommend and provide you with this potato salad recipe that I learned from my mother (she’s the one of the right, isn’t she beautiful) and it is always a hit wherever we bring it. I can’t count how many times someone has asked me for this recipe.  This potato salad is easy to make and can be whipped up in about 45 minutes, the longest part being boiling the potatoes.


  • 5lbs red potatoes
  • ½ white or sweet onion
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 ½ cup of mayonnaise
  • Pinch of sea salt and pepper


Cover 5 lbs of red potatoes with water and add a pinch of sea salt. Bring it to a boil and continue to boil it for 30-40 minutes or tender enough to poke through with a fork. Once the potatoes are tender enough drain the water and let the potatoes cool.

Chop up ½ of the onion and the 4 stalks of celery. Mix 1 ½ cup of mayonnaise, chopped onion, and chopped celery. Next cut up the potatoes into large chunks. Add the large chunks of potatoes to the mayonnaise mixture. Lastly add the sea salt and pepper to taste and gently stir. Transfer the potato salad to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate the potato salad for at least two hours or till you are ready to serve.
