Potato Salad

This classic redskin potato salad is the perfect addition to any summer picnic menue. It is very versatile and easily made to your tastes.


I grew up eating my mommas tater salad.  It was at every family get together, every church picnic, every picnic at the beach.  It’s easy to make and there is nothing unusual on the list of ingredients, I think that’s why my mom always made it, because she always had everything on hand. I have tried many different potato salad recipes over the years but I always come back to this one.  I actually think my mom used dill pickles but I found that I like the kick of spice and sweetness that the sweet and spicy pickles give this salad.  


The perfect accompaniment to fried chicken, hotdogs, hamburgers, ribs, steak, grilled chicken, pbj, cereal (well maybe the last two are a stretch) the list goes on and on. No picnic is complete without this potato salad.


Be sure to taste this salad as you are making it, adjust seasoning as you go, add more dill, or more pepper, more salt is always good!  As always make it your own! Potato salad will last up to four days if properly refrigerated. Be sure to always keep potato salad in a ice bath or insulated bowl if you have it outside on a hot day. Keep in an airtight container and return to refrigeration as soon as people are done eating.
