Potato Salad with Egg


Potatoes.  If I could only have one thing to eat for the rest of my life, I’m sure a potato would be in the list of components   There’s something about this starchy little guy.  The versatility, the texture, and the flavor it creates when paired with other ingredients. This is my absolute favorite Potato Salad.  I’m not a huge fan of the store-bought stuff.  I find it has way too much mayo, and other condiments.  I tend to make this every few months as a treat.  Potatoes are almost as good as chocolate in my opinion!


Now for the step by step picture instructions..


Chop the potatoes into bite size cubes (by the way my pointer is doing much better – I’m back to using knives after my mandolin incident.  Love this knife, best wedding gift ever!)

Place in a sauce pan with cold water about 2-3 inches above the potatoes, and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Place on medium heat.

Boil for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Not mushy. I like to rinse mine with cold water after they come out to stop them from cooking further.

Now for the eggs!  (Yes you only need three, I just boil more to have around for breakfast) 
Cover the eggs in the sauce pan with cold water, pour in about 2 tablespoons of vinegar into it.  Once the eggs start to boil, take them off the heat and keep covered for 15 minutes.

Wash, dry, then chop up some scallions!  I like using top ends more for garnish and the middle-bottom for adding into my recipes.

3 Eggs
2 Tablespoons Vinegar

1/4 Teaspoon Celery Seed
1/8 Teaspoon Pepper

2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
Tips of Scallions for Garnish
Chop the potatoes into bite size cubes. Place potatoes in a sauce pan with cold water about 2-3 inches above the potatoes, and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Place on medium heat.  Boil for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Not mushy. I like to rinse mine with cold water after they come out to stop them from cooking further.
Now for the eggs. Cover the eggs in a sauce pan with cold water, pour in about 2 tablespoons of vinegar into it.  Once the eggs start to boil, take them off the heat and keep covered for 15 minutes. Once they’re done, peel and chop them into bite size chunks. Wash, dry, and slice your scallions.  Add the eggs, scallions, celery seed, pepper, mayonnaise, and vinegar to the potatoes in a large bowl.  Mix together and top with some greens of the scallions.

    You had me at potato. I LIVE for potatoes but oddly, I’ve never been a fan of potato salad because of vinegar. If there was a way to make it without that ingredient I’d probably be all over it.

    Glad to see your finger is back in business. I remember when my mom sliced hers on one of those slicer things, OMG I wanted to cry looking at it.

    I actually always disliked potato salad because of the vinegar taste. In my recipe the small amount just perks it up a little bit! :) Thank you all so much for the comments!!

    You really did a great job on making this, and also for the detailed pictures you posted. Potatoes together with eggs are really something you should try. Thanks for the easy to follow procedures you made. Keep up the good work!

    This looks amazing. We hate store-bought potato salad. What’s the deal with celery? Hate it.

    I’m going to try making this, except I’ll need to cut the scallions finer because I don’t like bites of onion either.

    You tip for boiling eggs is great too!

    I too love potatoes. We’ll do most anything with a potato. We make fries, hash browns, au gratin, mashed etc. To us, potatoes are a daily staple :)

    I’d never actually had potato salad without eggs in it until I was an adult and had it at a friend’s BBQ. My mother always put eggs in hers so I assumed that was the only way to make it!

    My Mom used to hard-boil a couple of eggs and then thinly slice them and arrange them on top of the potato salad. It just doesn’t taste the same to me without egg!
