I'm thinking potato salad with pickled eggs (made by immersing the eggs in dill pickle juice...hmmm...I have some cured eggs that are just begging to be made into pickled eggs...).

Try this one out!

Hey there,

Here is one of my favorite potato salad recipes. I too hate when it is bland, and this one certainly is not.

I sprinkle the potatoes with pickle juice while still warm. Well, dilly bean juice anymore, since we decided we like crunchy dilly beans in it instead of pickles (I do not make decent dills).

Also use more salt and pepper than I normally would. A little celery and dressing is just mayo w/ a little dijon.

I like to sprinkle warm potatoes with a little rice vinegar or pickle juice before dressing, too. I rarely make it the same way twice, but it's hard to mess up so I almost always love it. The only way I really don't care for it is with mustard - maybe just a tiny bit, but I don't want it 'yellow'.

I really don't mind what potatoes I use, I like it both with firm potatoes and with floury ones. I must have onion and celery lots of HB eggs and chopped dill pickle. Many years ago my DH said "don't you put grated carrot in". (His mother did). I didn't think it was a bad idea so now I put finely grated carrot in. I dress simply with mayo, mustard ( sorry Cheryl) ;). Dill pickle juice and lots of pepper and some paprika. I used to use Miracle Whip instead of mayo as I was a MW junkie. As I aged I guess my tastes changed and now some things get mayo and some get MW.(turkey sandwich.....Miracle Whip, and lots of it!) Potato Salad ..... Mayonnaise, and no store brands, Best Foods/Hellman's only and MW salad dressing.

Of course now I'm hungry for potato salad.

I picked up a small bag of red potatoes yesterday. I'd never thought of cutting them to size before cooking, so I'll try that this time. I'll also add my dressing while the potatoes are still warm. I also boil some eggs in the same cooking water as the potatoes.


*stomach growling* I'm hungry, so I'd better get chopping.

My grandmother and mother always did that when making pasta or potato salad. You just want to make sure you don't overcook the eggs. I've always done it, as well. I also add celery seed to the water when cooking the potatoes or pasta.

Need help with potato salad...

Well, I couldn't resist making up another batch of potato salad either, as my last batch turned out so good, and this time I cooked the eggs along with the potatoes, which I've not done before. The eggs turned out perfect!
