How to Make Potato Salad Quick Time


  • 1Drain 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.
  • 2Dice Onion and Celery fine.
  • 3Add finely diced Pimentos and Parsley. (Optional)
  • 4Add 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.
  • 5Add the two Eggs diced medium. And mix gently. I always keep a few hard boiled eggs in the fridge.
  • 6Salt and Pepper to taste.
  • 7You 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.
  • 8A bigger crowd -- Double or triple everything.
