Rave-Review Potato Salad

Martha Price


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.
