I am not one for potato salad. In fact I have Very Strong Feelings against most potato salad. Especially the kind with like chunks of onions and celery and dill seed and eggs. Something about that is just EW to me. OH. Especially store bought stuff. My face is contorting right now just thinking of how gross it is to me.
The below describes the Most Yummy Potato Salad Ever.
It is the creation of my dear friend Mary (read her witty blog – with actual delicious recipes here) from way back in HIGH SCHOOL. We were truly cute little California high school girls (weren’t we Mary? I mean, I don’t mean to sound prideful – very discouraged here in the Midwest – but I look at pictures sometimes and think, my gosh we were CUTE) I can remember whipping this up in Mary’s kitchen for bonfires down at the beach…occasionally eating a ton of it as we made it…HA.
Start out with a bunch of potatoes, say maybe 6 (if you were making to bring to a picnic). Scrub well, cut into cubes, cut out bad spots. (That is right, don’t peel! See! Lazy person potato salad! YAY!)
Boil till potatoes are easily poked through with a fork.
Add in mayo (maybe ½ cup) and mustard (a couple good squirts)
Add in chunky cubes of dill pickles (PLEASE no relish. Ew.)
Add in a can of black olives (whole or cut, your choice)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Eat slightly warm out of the bowl before placing on table for admiring family and friends.
Truly yummy. (Thanks Mary!)
