This recipe is loosely based on a McCall’s recipe. One day I was in a hurry so I “winged” the recipe to suit the time for the salad to be done. I was surprised that it turned it so good; it was a hit with my family. So this is how I make my potato salad now.

Note: I accidentally bought a 5# bag of mini red potatoes from Wal-Mart. I didn't know mini red potatoes even existed! Anyway, for this recipe, should you be using the mini red potatoes, I suggest using the entire bag, which amounts to 15 potatoes total.

How to Make Wing It As You Go Potato Salad


  1. Boil red potatoes until tender. Chop. (You can peel them if you wish.) Put them in a big bowl to cool.

  4. Two hours later:
    • Mix together celery seed, salt and mayonnaise, then fold into the potatoes. Add mustard for taste and to give a yellowish tint to the salad. If you have time, chill longer in the refrigerator.
    • And serve! Enjoy.
