Mom’s Potato Salad
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
This week for Sunday Supper we are having fun sharing some of our mom’s favorite recipes.
One of my mom’s favorite recipes was this version of potato salad, which is the only way I knew potato salad for many years, until I found my own place in the world of potato salads recipes. And over time I have made many different kinds, and enjoyed them as well. For it was this recipe that started it all and set me to become the potato salad lover I am.
It has always been well asked for at family barbecues and my dad has declared it the “Best Potato Salad in the World” (but dads say those kind of things). But in this case it may well be very true!
And even though I had not made this recipe in years, I have helped my mother make it so many times. And when I taste it, maybe it’s a funny thing to say but it “tastes like Mom.” I could imagine she was right there beside me, peeling potatoes and chopping veggies just like the old days. And I loved it so much I would eat it warm because I couldn’t wait, and she’d always scold me, telling me it needed time to chill.
Trust me, this tastes great warm or cold! And I hope you enjoy and have a great Mother’s Day week! Be sure to check out all the rest of the blogger’s recipes after the recipe printout and don’t forget to pin your favorites!
