Perfect Plain Potato Salad

So, I'm really picky when it comes to potato salad. To be honest, I don't love it all that much - some have too much onion, some have too much pickle (or any pickle for that matter), some are made with Miracle Whip (eeeewwww)...You get the idea. So, I had some last summer that I really liked, it's plain, but just up my alley for potato salad. Let me know if you like it!

6 medium whole potatoes - peeled boiled for about 15 minutes. Once they are soft enough to cut (don't overcook), let them cool slightly, and then dice.

1.5 cups Mayo
1 TBS. white vinegar
1 TBS. prepared mustard
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper (fresh ground)
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 white or vidalia onion, finely chopped

Mix the above ingredients together. Add diced potatoes, onions, and if you like celery (I didn't have any in my kitchen this time), you can add 2 stalks, chopped up. Mix it all together to coat. Add 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped. Let it all sit together in the fridge overnight, or at least 4 hours, to enhance flavor. Serve with BBQ!


  1. I was just looking up recipes for potato salad TODAY!! we must be sisters....

  2. I'm a huge fan of BBQ food and this sounds like the perfect complement. Potato salad is definitely tough to get just the right balance of everything. I'll have to give this recipe a try.

  3. Yum, I made this for a BBQ this weekend and it was delicious. I love dill in potato salad. I hope you don't mind if I post it on my blog with a link to your site.


Thanks for your comment!

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
