Sandi of Whistlestop Cooking selected this week's salad recipe. She gave us two of her favorite potato salads and encouraged us to share our own favorite recipe. I love potato salad and make it quite often but I never follow a recipe. I chose to make the Warm Potato Salad because I prefer sour cream instead of mayonnaise. I like something sweet and crunchy in my potato salad and I usually add some small diced apples or sweet pickles. The salad in the photo has apples in it. I also added a few sliced green olives and sprinkled a bit of crushed red pepper on top.
Thank you Sandy for sharing these recipes. I’m planning on making soon the one with the spicy mustard for my family. I'm sure they're going to enjoy it.
Sandy's recipes and notes:
I know there are as many recipes for potato salad as there are kinds of potatoes. This is a recipe that is a combination of a southern potato salad and a german mustard potato salad. It is a favorite for us!
Southern Mustard Potato Salad
1-2 pounds potatoes
4-5 hard boiled eggs
1 sweet onion, diced
1/2 cup diced celery
1/4 cup pickle relish
3 Tbs spicy mustard
1/2 cup mayo
Clean potatoes then boil them whole. Once tender, 15-20 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool. Dice onion and celery. Dice potatoes into large chunks.
In another bowl whisk together mayo, mustard and pickle relish. Add kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Stir all ingredients together. Finally, peel and slice the hard boiled eggs and stir those in as well. Serve warm or cold.
Another favortie potato salad is this one from my cookbook...
Warm Potato Salad
1 pound red potatoes
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup non fat sour cream
