Party Potato Salad

Teresa Edmondson


When I first met my husband, his mother was in charge of making the potato salad for family gatherings. Well, one year she wasn't able to make it and asked me to. I made this recipe up "on the fly" and everyone loved it ... more than my mother-in-laws ...LOL. I have made this many times and have even made it for large parties ... I just double or triple the recipe depending on the number of people. I hope you enjoy!!

How to Make Party Potato Salad


  1. Boil potatoes in salted water with skins on until fork tender. Let cool until easily handled for peeling. Peel and rough chop into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Salad should be a little "wet" as potatoes will absorb some of the mayonaise
  3. Chill in refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving. The longer is chills the better it is
