The southern potato salad is super creamy with a mix of mayonnaise and mustard, hard boiled eggs, sweet onion, pickle relish and celery. It’s a must have and the only potato salad recipe you need.
There’s nothing like a bowl of good old-fashioned southern potato salad. A potato salad recipe is something everyone should have on hand.
I start my southern potato salad with normal potatoes. I cut the big ones in half so they cook faster and I don’t bother peeling them until the cooking is done. Then it is very easy to scrape the skin off with a knife.
I start my southern potato salad with normal russet potatoes. I cut the big ones in half so that they cook faster and I don’t bother to peel them before the end of the cooking. Afterwards, it is very easy to scrape off the skin with a knife.
Lots of hard boiled eggs, a little celery for crunchiness, sweet onions, sweet pickle sauce, a little onion powder and a few teaspoons of sugar. I like to finish by sprinkling a little paprika on top.
Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it cool for at least a few hours. Then you’re ready to grill hamburgers or barbecued chicken to accompany this delicious southern potato salad.
