I use Yukon golds, blue russets, and new potatoes. Crispy cooked bacon, grease reserved. Celery, hard boiled egg, red onion, celery salt, a little mayo, a little of the rendered bacon fat, bacon(of course), and a little bit of cayenne.

This is a recipe I developed last year, based on this same discussion.

Potato Salad all ingredients are “about”

About 4 pounds potatoes, diced, unpeeled, cooked

1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 medium onion, finely chopped

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
2 t. prepared horseradish
1 T. prepared mustard
1 ½ t. salt
½ t. pepper

2 stalks celery, chopped
eggs, hard cooked and diced
3 ounces chopped smoked summer sausage
¼ cup smoked bacon, crumbled

paprika

Boil potatoes just until tender. Cool briefly, mix with oil, vinegar and diced onion. Cover and refrigerate for a couple hours.

Mix mayo, sour cream, horseradish, mustard, salt and pepper together. Stir into chilled potatoes. Add chopped vegetables, eggs and meats. Stir until well blended. Dust with paprika.

If you do not use the smoked meat, you will need to add more salt, up to 1 more teaspoon, or to taste.

Same as CJS, sometimes with the addition of radishes - sliced.

Potatoes, hardboiled eggs, onion, celery, celery seed, salt, pepper, homemade mayo, miracle whip.

Mayonnaise

Beat 3 eggs. Add 1 cup sugar, 1tsp salt, 1 heaping Tbsp. flour, chunk of butter (about 3-4 Tbsp.),mustard ( about 2-3 Tbsp), 1/2 cup vinegar and 1 cup milk. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until thick.

This is my Grandma's recipe. We like to make the potato salad and eat it still warm! This mayo recipe is also good with spinach stirred in for a quick scalloped spinach recipe.

My family is so Plain Jane, I can't be that creative though all your recipes sound deelish! I just use Idahoes, hard boiled eggs, celery salt & ranch dressing. They love it, so I'll keep making it that way!

Jeez, Beth, that's not a salad, that's a meal! Sounds delish!

I do mine like Cjs, minus the bacon.
