Wonderful tasting and the best Southern-style potato salad you can eat.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Looking for a simple potato salad recipe for summer cookouts? Definitely try this one. JoAnn uses red potatoes in her recipe which is a great choice because they are firm and don't become super mushy in the potato salad. Since there are very few ingredients, using good mayonnaise and mustard is a must in this recipe. The mustard, along with the lemon pepper, gives the salad a little tang. If you have picky eaters, this potato salad is for you. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Nana JoAnn's Potato Salad

Test Kitchen Tips
Do a quick taste before serving. The potatoes may soak up the mayonnaise, so you may need to add a little extra and a pinch or two of salt. We boiled the potatoes for about 15 minutes until they were fork tender. For the eggs, we placed them in a saucepan with water. Brought the water to a boil, turned off the heat and let them sit covered for 10 minutes.

Step-by-Step

  1. After boiling the potatoes and eggs allow them to cook. Dice the potatoes with the skins on. Peel and dice the eggs. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the finely chopped onions to the bowl and mix.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients.
  4. Mix well. Put in the fridge covered for an hour or more.
  5. Before serving, pour into large serving dish. Smooth top. Add parsley and paprika to decorate. Then serve.
