Martha's Story

I really don't know where I first came across this recipe.It is very good for those who prefer a non-sweet potato salad. The recipe can be halved, or doubled, based on your needs.
The marinated "secret sauce" really does add to the flavor.


3 Tbsp
white vinegar
2 tsp
mustard seed
1 and 1/2 tsp
celery seed
9 medium
potatoes, (3 lbs)
1 c
celery, peeled and chopped
1/2 c
green onion, thinly sliced
3 - 4
hard-cooked eggs, roughly chopped
2 c
mayonnaise (hellmans, best foods)
1 tsp
paprika, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine vinegar, mustard seed, and celery seed. Let stand at room temperature for several hours. You can crush the seeds, if desired, but it really is not necessary.
In covered saucepan, cook potatoes until barely tender; 25 to 30 minutes; drain.
In a large bowl, sprinkle the potatoes with 1/2 of the salt. Add celery, onion, and chopped eggs; toss lightly.
Combine mayonnaise, remaining salt, and vinegar mixture; add to potatoes; toss to mix. Chill; sprinkle with paprika.

Laura, I'll have to try the shredded carrot, too! Bound to make it pretty, and couldn't hurt the flavor:)

Yes! I dislike sweet in potato salad, this is basically the recipe that my mom used, but she also added 1 shredded carrot. (for color she said, lol) Then she sliced extra eggs on top to garnish before adding the paprika. Funny how close recipes are plus or minus one ingredient or another! :)
