The fantastic flavor of this potato salad is created by peeling the potatoes after they're cooked and mixing the ingredients while warm. Using golden potatoes makes this recipe special! Celery, bell pepper, and olives may be added if desired.

Finally Shorecook's recipe has been published! I've been making her personal recipe for a few years now. Here's my review: Perfect recipe as written! It wasn't overly creamy as you would get from a store. This potato salad tastes even better the next day as the ingredients continue to meld together. Even my husband who is picky on potato salads loved this. Who ever knew potato salad was so easy to make? I added two stalks celery chopped just to add some extra crunch to the salad (see her if desired suggestions in recipe description). We'll never use store bought potato salad again. We've brought this potato salad as a potluck dish to share with our cabin neighbors (they do a guys trip) during an annual trip and this potato salad had 5 star reviews with comments of best potato salad they've ever had but don't repeat that to my mom or wife lol. Thanks for sharing the recipe Shorecook. Still making and loving it! Read More

It's not that I couldn't eat it I WOULDN'T eat it. This (so called) Potato Salad leaves VERY MUCH to be desired! Anyone who thought that this Potato Salad was good obviously has nothing more than a palate for (supermarket) Deli Potato Salad. Read More

Been making my potato salad like this for years. I always add celery. I let it sit in the fridge for 5-6 hours and recheck the seasoning and mayo level. I also sprinkle w paprika on the top before serving for a more traditional look. Always receive compliments even from people who prefer pickles or viniger based dressing. Read More

Peel and slice potatoes prior to boiling. For low Fodmap replace onion with green onions, green parts only. Read More

This is basically my mother s recipe with two notable exceptions. She added a small amount of white vinegar and celery seeds. Whenever I take it to a pot luck the dish comes home empty. Read More

What? No chopped gherkins? And celery seed is even better than salt. Read More
