Old Fashioned Potato Salad

On the menu tonight – Old Fashioned Potato Salad!

Potato salad is must for any BBQ, grill session, pot luck, and a perfect side dish for so many meals. This version comes together so easily and is so delicious, you won’t need to get the stuff pre-made at the grocery store.

My version includes apple cider vinegar, mayonnaise, dry mustard powder, red onion, parsley,and spicy pickles. Spicy pickles? YES! You’ll know the pickles are there, but they are in the background.

Old Fashioned Potato Salad


  • 2-3 lbs potatoes (your choice of potato but you can't go wrong with the small red potatoes or Yukon gold)
  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Celery finely chopped (I like to use the center of the celery stalk and include the greens)
  • 1 - 2 Spicy pickles (like Zingers), finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste



Dice the potatoes to desired size (approx 1" dice) or slice


Put the potatoes in a large pot of water as you cut them to avoid them getting brown


Bring the potatoes to a boil, generously season the water with Kosher or Sea salt, then lower the heat and cook until fork tender


Drain the potatoes and let cool down before adding the rest of the ingredients


Once cooled, add the potatoes to a large mixing bowl along with rest of the ingredients


Check seasoning, add salt and pepper to taste
