How to Make Potato Salad Quick Time


  1. Drain canned Potatoes and place in bowl with paper towel to absorb excess liquid, (They're already cooked) I use a hand multi-blade pastry blender to fine mince potatoes after removing paper towel, a process I borrowed from a local restaurant. I like the texture of the minced potatoes. You could dice to desired size.
  2. Dice Onion and Celery fine.
  3. Add finely diced Pimentos and Parsley. (Optional)
  4. Add Mayonnaise (You know the only one) and mix and blend well. If using mayonnaise I add a half teaspoon sugar. I prefer Mayonnaise over Miracle Whip.
  5. Add the two Eggs diced medium. And mix gently. I always keep a few hard boiled eggs in the fridge.
  6. Salt and Pepper to taste.
  7. You could add Green Peeper or Yellow Mustard or anything of your choice. You could slice a third Egg to top. Quick, Easy and Sooo Good. Variation: Add some Dill Seed or Summer Savory,equally good.
  8. A bigger crowd -- Double or triple everything.
