Today for Food Fun Friday, Mom and I made potato salad. We used my grandmother's recipe. Later I will learn my mom's recipe.
To make this you need:
4/5 Cooked potatoes with the skins on
1 large carrot
1 small onion
1/2 green bell pepper
2 stalks of green onion
any other fresh veggies you would like to add (we sometimes add celery, cucumber, black olives or broccoli)
2 hard boiled eggs
5 slices of bacon
To make the sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
mustard and spices to taste
you should make this up ahead of time so it is cold when you add it.
In a bowl, mix the mayo with just enough mustard to give it flavor. You can use any kind of mustard you like. Then add spices. We use garlic, onion powder, lots of black pepper, paprika and parsley. Mix in just enough milk to make it as thin or thick as you want it to be. We like thick so if you make it too thin you can add some more mayo. If you use hard boiled eggs in your salad, you can mix the yolks into the sauce for more flavor.
To cook your potatoes you can either boil them or put them in the microwave until they are tender but still a little hard. Put them in the fridge overnight so they are really cold. Chop and add your veggies. We like ours to be in thick chunks but you can make them however big you like. Mix them together with the sauce and let it sit for at least an hour. Mom says overnight is better but we always make ours up the same day.
