Homemade Potato Salad

homemade potato salad

One of the best things about Summer BBQ is Potato Salad. We really adore this special salad dish.  Not kidding here folks, even Kent who hates mayonnaise loves my potato salad. This is one of the easiest dishes you will make and guests will love it. Best part of this recipe is the adaptability, measure by sight and taste.

Saturday was a beautiful sunny day and Kent decided Pulled Pork and salad would be appropriate for supper.  Sadly the pork did not shred as it should but it tasted delicious.  As sides we opted for Coleslaw and potato salad,

The most time consuming part of potato salad is peeling the spuds.

I normally opt for 6-8 medium potato, we want to make sure there is leftovers.  When I boil the potatoes I also add one half dozen eggs.  Peel and dice the potatoes. Place in pot and cover with water and salt ( just a sprinkle). Boil till soft
