Ree Has Nothing On Me My Bread And Butter Potato Salad Recipe!

I made potato salad for my family yesterday. You are probably wondering why I think mine is special…why on earth would someone post pics of and write a blog post about potato salad! Mine is only slightly different. I have added an ingredient that really enhances my salad. Plain and simple…I chop up bread and butter pickle spears. They are just the right amount of sweet with a little crunch! Here is my process/ recipe.

Chopped celery (to taste)

Chopped onion (to taste)

6 boiled potatoes, (I use yellow) the flavor and texture of yellow potatoes are perfect for salad! I boil my potatos whole. Bring to boil, reduce heat to slow simmer and cook till fork tender. About 30-35 min. Cool for a few hours. They peel easily when they have been boiled. Peel and cut into nice bite size chunks.( not too small! )

6 hard boiled eggs (3 chopped to fold into the salad. 3 to slice for the top of the salad) * looks so pretty on top with sprinkled paprika!

Chopped Bread and Butter Pickles to taste I used 4 spears in mine.

Mayonnaise  (eyeball it lol) you want the salad creamy but not greasy.* Add all ingredients and fold in tour mayo. You don’t want to break up your potato chunks too much.

 Yellow Mustard (to taste)

Salt & Pepper (to taste)

*Paprika for the finishing touch, sprinkle genoursly on top of your salad. I use Hungarian Paprika as it has a more distinct flavor. 

  

Cool hard boiled eggs thoroughly before you add to salad!

  

I boil my potatoes whole! The skins peel off easily after they cool!

   

Notice my not so fancy rubbermaid plastic container lol. You can dress yours up with a pretty bowl. It was just for us so I eliminated the fuss and muss by serving this in the storage container.
