Grandma’s Potato Salad
I like making potato salad, it reminds me of my grandmother, so today I wanted to share with you Grandma’s Potato Salad. My grandmother was from Ireland, potatoes were her thing, so she made the best potato salad. I never got a recipe from her but was always watching her in the kitchen and of course enjoying all that she had to make. Labour Day is coming so I thought I would share this recipe with you for a great holiday potluck, picnic or BBQ!
It is a simple recipe but very delicious. Potato salad is a crowd pleaser for sure, and it is my hubby’s favorite! Crunchy and creamy and full of wonderful flavor that let’s the potatoes shine through.
There are a few must haves in my potato salad and I get that from my grandmother. Always includes eggs, mustard, green onion, and celery. The added dill pickles is something that went in if it was on hand. I am loving dill pickle relish right now and it is quick and easy to add, no need to chop pickles. There were always extra potatoes boiled when my grandmother made potato salad, for her potato scones or potato pancakes too.
