The Best Potato Salad Ever

We had an impromptu picnic on Memorial Day. We hadn't planned it, really, but invited a few people over the night before to enjoy our air conditioning (the temperature was expected to soar into the mid-90's) and some good food. We ended up eating outside on the deck, which was totally ridiculous given the temperature outside.

At any rate, Joe whipped up my favorite macaroni salad for the picnic. Knowing that my mom doesn't like cold macaroni, I asked him to make up some potato salad, too.

When he asked for a recipe, I told him to use the same recipe for the dressing he'd used on the macaroni salad. He made a couple of minor adjustments, and the result was fantastic. Astounding. Lick the spoon and plate and bowl good. That potato salad was so very delicious that I wished I could have eaten it every day for a week. We're going to have to make it again. Soon.

Instructions
  1. If desired, peel the potatoes. We only peel them when my dad is coming over; he won't eat potato skins.
  2. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized chunks and boil.
  3. While waiting for the potatoes to cook, whisk all remaining ingredients together in a small bowl.
  4. When the potatoes are soft, toss them with the mayonnaise dressing.
  5. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours so that the flavors blend.
  6. Serve chilled.

  1. Wow. That sounds amazing. But what made me go OH MY GOODNESS was the moment where I thought you were serving burgers on a biscuit and my little southern heart went – OH!! YES!! (I think upon a closer inspection it is not a biscuit, but next time I make turkey burgers I think I may need to try out a biscuit situation…)
    (I also think Disqus does not like me…we will discuss. OH SNAP!)

    • I’m not a huge Disqus fan, either, to tell you the truth. But this theme somehow disables threaded comments, and Disqus was the only way to get them back. Fortunately, we may be able to fix that soon. 🙂

      And, no, they aren’t biscuits. They are Hawaiian rolls. My mom and sister picked them up. They were tasty.
