The Best Potato Salad

For me this is the best potato salad.  I have had store bought potato salad from several delis and grocery stores, and I always yearn for my own recipe.  Here it is. To be plant based, skip the hard boiled eggs and use plant based mayonnaise.  The addition of a tiny amount of vinegar and sugar makes the difference between a bland or too sour a potato salad.  The amounts I gave here for me are the right proportions for the dressing.  The sugar can be adjusted if for example you happen to be using very sweet pickle relish.

This is a good basic recipe for a really good potato salad.  Give it a try. Hope it is not too late for your picnic and if it is, still prepare it to go with your leftover hot dogs and beans.

The Best Potato Salad

  • 4 large peeled cooked potatoes, cubed
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped finely
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pickle relish
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped (skip for a plant based version)
  • 1/2 cup low fat mayonnaise or plant based mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar or to taste
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and set aside. 

Place all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and add the dressing.  Mix thoroughly till the vegetables are coated with the dressing.
