      I enjoy cooking with potatoes, and I’ve tried lots of potato recipes over the years, but I had never tried to make my own potato salad until recently. I used to just buy containers of it from my grocery store’s deli. I finally decided to try making it because I was never quite satisfied with the deli’s potato salad. I thought it had too much mayonnaise and not enough flavor. So I looked up several recipes online and combined elements from a few different recipes to come up with my own. I thought it would take at least a couple of tries before I came up with a

      recipe I really liked, but I surprised myself with my first attempt. I was very pleased with the result, because the flavors seemed to blend together nicely without any particular ingredient seeming either overwhelming or bland.

      Here are the ingredients I used:

      6 Russet potatoes 4 tablespoons mayonnaise 2 tablespoons sour cream 1 teaspoon yellow mustard 2 teaspoons pickle relish 1/4 cup finely chopped celery 1/8 cup finely chopped onions 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper

      Making the potato salad was easier than I thought it would be. I thought peeling the potatoes would be really time-consuming, but that wasn’t the case at all. First, I boiled the potatoes for approximately 30 ...


      • minutes, until they were tender when I poked them with a fork. After boiling the potatoes and draining the water the skins were very tender, and they came off easily. I was able to remove the skins by mostly using only my fingers. After the potatoes were peeled, I placed them in a bowl of cold water for approximately 20 minutes. Then, after removing them from the water, chopped the potatoes into cubes and placed them in a large mixing bowl. Next, I simply added all of the ingredients in with the potatoes and gently mixed them together with a large spoon. The final step is just
        to cover and chill the salad for approximately 1 hour before serving. I waited for more than 2 hours, because I think potato salad tastes best if it’s thoroughly chilled.

        I thought the only drawback to making this recipe was the amount of time involved, but the steps themselves were very easy. I think this is a great recipe to make ahead of time to go with lunch or dinner. The next time I serve sandwiches I’ll be serving this potato salad with them. Despite the time involved, I won’t hesitate to make this recipe again because I thought it was a lot better than the deli potato salad I was buying, not to mention a lot more affordable.
