My Favorite Potato Salad


I guess I must be ready for summer or something! I think just about everyone is right now! Anyway, my husband's parents are coming over for a belated birthday celebration for my husband and we are going to grill, so I thought I would whip up a batch of my favorite potato salad!



Now, I realize that there is nothing new under the sun and that you all have had potato salad about 924 times in your life already. I actually tried to google how much potato salad we eat in our lifetime but couldn't find it. I would love to know this fact, so if anyone out there has the answer, please share!

Here is what I use:
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
  • 4 oz can sliced olives
  • 1/2 cup dill pickle coarsely chopped
  • 2 slices crisp turkey bacon, chopped
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 3/4-1 cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
Cook your potatoes in the microwave until tender. Cut into medium sized pieces. Dump everything into a large bowl and stir well. I think this salad is awesome right when I am finished making it! It's still a little warm and very wonderful!

I love ALL potato salad! My Oma made a German potato salad that was vinegar based. I can approximate it, but can't. quite. nail it.

As a result I'm potato salad obsessed :)

I've never thought about putting bacon in my potato salad, I am totally looking this up next time I make it. I love potato salad, it's the epitome of summer bbqs!

Potato salad is really my favorite summertime side dish. I have never had it with OLIVES!! What is wrong with me? I am convinced that the olives are what my potato salad has been missing!! It is freezing here today (Cincinnati, Ohio) but true to our weather it is going to be in the mid 80's by weeks end!! Grilling and your potato salad are on the menu. Have a great week.

Leave it to my family to be the oddball. None of us like potato salad. So we never eat it. But yours looks yummy! You're such a talented cook my friend!

This is a lot like the potato salad I make. I love potato salad sandwiches with the leftovers :)

yey!!! I am so glad I found your blog!!!! I am always looking for new recipes. The picture in your headed just looks way too good!

That's interesting that you like to eat it right after you've made it while it's still warm. I always like to make potato salad the day before so it is very very cold.

Hmm, maybe I've been missing out?

Thanks for the recipe! I love the directions, dump everything into a bowl!

That sounds so good! No wonder you are eating it for breakfast!
