Potato Salad Recipe

Potato Salad recipe
Delicious Potato Salad
Welcome to Soul Food Sunday! Today I am sharing a delicious and easy potato salad recipe (with pictures!) Potato salad is one of my favorite things about summer. As bad as I know it is for any weight loss goals, I can’t pass it up, especially if it is good. And there is nothing better than good potato salad, than a good potato salad recipe so you can whip it up whenever you get the craving

From the first bite, I loved, loved, loved my mother-in-law’s potato salad and immediately asked for the recipe. It is tangy and delicious, perfect for a nice summer BBQ, a baby or bridal shower, or actually just any event! It’s so good.

She graciously shared her recipe, which I am sharing with you today. I did take a whirl at it and did a decent job (see my photos). Even though I have the recipe, however, I still prefer it when she makes it! Thanks Geri!

Potato Salad recipe ingredients
Everything you'll need to make delish potato salad
 5 lbs red potatoes
18 eggs
3 TBS garlic powder
3 TBS onion powder
1.5 TBS black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 TBS relish
2 cups Miracle Whip
2.5 TBS vinegar
Paprika (optional, for sprinkling)
(recipe is easily halved)

Boil potatoes (skin-on) until fork inserts easily. It took approximately 1 hour for me. Pour off water and let cool, preferably overnight. Boil eggs and let cool.

Once potatoes are completely cooled - peel and cube the potatoes. As you cube potatoes and place in bowl, season each layer of cubed potatoes in bowl with garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Stir to mix. Reserve 2 teaspoons of garlic powder and onion powder and 1 teaspoon of pepper.

Add salt and sugar. Stir to mix.

Separate egg yellows from whites. Mash yellows finely with a fork in a bowl.

Add to cubed potatoes and season with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, and ½ teaspoon black pepper.

Chop whites to small chunks. Add to potatoes. Add remaining 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Stir to mix.

Add one tablespoon of relish. Stir to mix.

Add Miracle Whip and vinegar.  Stir to mix. Sprinkle paprika on top, if desired.
