I can't resist trying just about every potato salad (and meatloaf) recipe I come across! This one is GOOD, - I had never before tried a potato salad recipe that uses a marinade in addition to the traditional mayonnaise dressing. This recipe comes from Taste Of Home magazine, and was submitted by Dorthy Bateman. Thanks, Dorthy! I halved the recipe for just the two of us.

How To Make rave-review potato salad

  • 1
    Place potatoes in a dutch oven or large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cook until tender 20 to 30 minutes. (I steamed my potatoes).
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine chives, oil, vinegar, onion, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • 3
    Drain potatoes; cool slightly. Cut into cubes; add to oil mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  • 4
    In a small bowl combine mayonnaise and yogurt; chill. Just before serving, fold the mayonnaise mixture, celery and green pepper or cucumber into the marinated potatoes. If using hard-cooked eggs, cut up or slice eggs and gently fold into salad. If desired, sprinkle with parsley, green onions, or paprika.
