Potato Salad

Mom would make potato salad on the weekends for big family meals. weekend meals meant sitting at the table, eatting with a knife and fork, learning table manners and potato salad with baked chicken and provision.

The Elements

  • Potatoes
  • Mayonnaise
  • Onion
  • 2 boiled whole eggs
  • green onions
  • mustard
  • paprika


You can use any potato you want, the key is not to over cook it. Peel and cut you potatoes to large cubes about the same size so they all cook at the same rate, All you eggs so they can boil with your potato. boil your potatoes in salted water for 10 minutes, there should still be a slight bite to your potato, but it should not be crunchy. If after 10 minutes the potato is crunchy in the middle, give it another 3 minutes. Drain the water and place this in the fridge to cool

The Veg

Dice purple Spanish onions and green green onions

The Final Dish
