Old Fashioned Potato Salad with Egg

Garrison Wayne


As far as Potato Salads go, this one is about as traditional and standard as they get. Some folks love a Dill Pickle flavor in their Potato Salad. I much prefer the Sweet Pickle Relish, myself. The addition of Cider Vinegar adds the tartness to counter balance the flavors. The inclusion of Chopped Eggs is what makes this Old Fashioned for me. I believe making a Potato Salad is one of the smartest dishes you can make ahead, when you are entertaining. It goes with so many things, and you're not in the kitchen, at the last minute, mashing Potatoes. I'm all for making things ahead.
