Old-Fashioned Potato Salad

Exceptional side dishes should never be overlooked on game day. Sometimes they get lost on a table of potluck pretties when competing for plate space with smoked ribs, buffalo chicken sliders, bacon-cheddar tailgating bread, meatballs, spinach dip & Aunt Mabel’s cold fried chicken on the roster of goodies for the afternoon. An entire food category from crunchy cole slaw & tangy baked beans to onion rings & deviled eggs deserve to be on your starting line up come time to make a plate. Old-Fashioned Potato Salad has long been a favorite recipe of ours as the simple flavors fall into the neutral zone & pair well with just about everything. Be certain someone in your bunch plans to bring this tailgating icon to the gathering. You won’t be disappointed.

Old-Fashioned Potato Salad
makes 8 servings

Run The Option

Cooking the potatoes in their jackets delivers a smooth texture. For a little crunch, add chopped celery. Omit the pickle relish & fold in fresh herbs for a new spin.

3 lbs russet potatoes
1 cup mayonnaise
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2/3 cup diced red or sweet onion
1/3 cup sweet pickle relish
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
5 Hard Cooked Eggs, grated
Garnish: Fresh parsley

Cover the potatoes with 1-inch of water & bring to a boil in a Dutch oven. Start the timer & cook 30 to 40 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain & cool about 20 minutes. Peel the jackets from the potatoes & coarsely chop. Stir together the mayonnaise, the Dijon, the onion & the pickle relish in a large bowl. Sprinkle liberally with salt & pepper. Fold in the warm potatoes & grated eggs. Serve right away or chill up to a day ahead.

The Extra Point

Potato salad is delicious over mixed greens but when topped with Aunt Mable’s fried chicken… well, then you’ve got yourself a real winner.

Place the eggs in a single layer in a 3-quart saucepan & cover with about 1-inch of water. Bring them to a rolling boil over High heat. Cover them with the lid, turn off the heat & let them stand 7 minutes. Remove the lid & drain in a colander. Place the eggs back into the saucepan. Shake it good so they crack all over then peel them under cool running water. Rinse off any tiny bits of cracked shells. Plunge them into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process. Use as directed.
