Creamy Potato Salad

I love potato salad! But not just ANY potato salad. I am very picky. I’ve never liked the store brands and I refuse to eat potato salad at restaurants because I’m always disappointed. The only potato salad I’ve ever liked is, of course, my mom’s recipe! Although a lot of college students don’t typically buy a lot of potatoes; I think anyone would change their minds once tasting a bite of this! It’s not hard to make and is perfect for a pool party or picnic (just don’t leave it sitting out in the AZ heat!) I knew I needed to share it with everyone so I hope you enjoy it as much me and my family! Here is what you need:

(Makes 8 servings)

7 medium potatoes

Italian dressing

3/4 cup celery

1/3 cup sliced green onions or chives

4 whites of hard boiled eggs

1 cup mayo

1/2 cup sour cream

1 1/2 tsp. horseradish mustard


Directions: Cook seven medium potatoes in jackets, peel and slice-making six cups. While potatoes are warm, pour 1/2 cup italian dressing over. Chill for two hours. (Tip: Chilling is very important!) Add 3/4 cup sliced celery and 1/2 cup sliced green onions and tops. Chop whites of four hard boiled eggs and add to mix. Save yolks-reserve some for garnish. Combine remaining yolks with 1 cup mayo, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 1/2 tsp. horseradish mustard. Fold into salad. Add salt and celery. Chill for two hours.

I don’t know what it is, but this potato salad tastes like no other potato salad. It’s very simple and traditional but nothing else comes close! I’ve searched for some other potato salad recipes online that I’ll share with you as well. If I decide to be adventurous I’ll try them out because they sound tasty but I don’t know how they will compare!
