Potato salad is all about the balance of ingredients. I like mayo with just a little mustard. Celery and onions, salt and pepper. A little pickle or pickled jalapeno juice is a good addition. No eggs, no sweet pickles.

Coleman's dry mustard and cut the mayo with plain yogurt. I think I usually put a little Louisiana hot sauce in there too.

Yes.

There's a semi-famous (food network) bbq place here called the SAlt Lick. It's out in Driftwood, nice place but a little touristy. Their side dishes all have a weird almost asian touch. The potato salad is potatoes and dill pickle juice. Maybe a little salt and pepper, but that's it. Their slaw is a vinegar based, no mayo. The bbq is ok, but in a weird way I like their sides.

No eggs

like to do that too. amps up the taste just a little. also like to put fresh dill in mine as well. don't use any eggs in mine either. i usually add a little bit of lemon juice in as well. and some chopped onions and celery.

I usually put dijon mustard and jalapeno pickles in mine. Light on the mayo.

BACON, and skins on for pete's sake.

BACON, and skins on for pete's sake.

For a good variation, use little red potatoes and mix them with bacon, celery onion, salt/pepper and good mayo or even ranch dressing.

I like mine with green salad olives( you know ,the smushed kind) and some juice from the jar of olives. Also onions chopped in to teeny tiny bits.
Posted: May 25, 2007 3:42 am
 
Steam the potatoes with the skins on. Very, very light on the mayo or Vegenaise. Green onion and very, very thinly sliced celery. Black olives, sliced. Squeeze in a little lemon. That's it!

Cook the potatoes then sprinkle several tablespoons of cider vinegar on em while still warm then dress however you like. It surely makes a difference.

Boiled eggs in anything are poison.

All of these recipes sound like they'd make great tuna salad.
Posted: May 25, 2007 10:29 pm
 
nooooo

not the pickle juice

NOT the pickle juice!!!!

bacon is the total secret ingredient for potato salad.
Posted: May 27, 2007 5:27 pm
 
Mayo
Creole Mustard
Red Onion
Green Onion
Red Wine Vinegar
Roast Garlic

well, you have here your oil/fat school of taste bud, and your vinegar school of taste bud.

i like them both; have a place in my heart and palate for both... but potato salad begs the question: are you taking it on a picnic or out/away from home? if so.... please consider the VINEGAR options of dressing the salad! unless you have a great cooler and the potato salad doesn't sit on a blanket or picnic table. nothing more gross (or potentially food poisonous [ie: NO eggs!] than mayo that's hot, been sitting in the sun)

potatoes... magic, versatile ingredient for salad. i like the yukons or reds for salad.... a much more important issue to me than acid vs. grease.... although bacon in any food is heavenly.

my ideal potato salad would be:
boiled yukon gold or red new potatoes
salad dressing of bacon drippings, either cider or rice wine vinegar
bacon crumbled

alternatively, for controlled temperature situations
potatoes with strained, drained plain yogurt, dill weed, salt & pepper and little else

Always add radishes!

hey windy what was the kind dad used to make? for the competitions. that shit was way good
Posted: May 30, 2007 8:06 pm
 
NO MAYO!! Always ruins a perfectly good potato salad!!! Vinegar, dill, dry mustard, red potatoes and, of course, BACON!!

I talked Rachael Hicks into putting blue food coloring, and Marijuana in the potato salad we made for a party. At first people wouldn't eat it because it was blue, but when we informed the reluctant guests about our secret illeagal ingriedient, it was finally consumed.

ha! we used to do a "red white & blue" picnic on the 4th of july... always made blue potato salad. back in 1977 when we started this, people were spiking the food w/ acid, though

[i]hey windy what was the kind dad used to make? for the competitions. that shit was way good[i]

the bacon/ ranch stuff? Is it the stuff he has at the restaurant? if so he buys it it's called baked potato or some such.
Posted: May 31, 2007 6:46 pm
 
spiking the food w/ acid, though

Sounds Dangerous.

I can't believe Veganaise was mentioned in here and the poster hasn't been banned. Shameful, fellow Goners.

Veganaise ROCKS!
Especially Blue Veganaise
