I was surprised to discover that Steve really likes potato salad. I used this recipe from allrecipes.com to make a small batch, enough for one meal and a night snack for Steve. I cut down the ingredient amounts to suit my plan. Most cooks have developed their own personal versions of potato salad. I haven’t made any in a long time, so consulting this recipe was helpful.
Do you have a personal preference in potato salad ingredients? We like mayonnaise in ours with a squirt of mustard. Some prefer a tangier salad dressing, and I know a few people in my family that don’t appreciate even one drop of mustard in it. We like sweet pickle relish, too. This time I added a little green pepper. The recipe calls for shredded carrot. I like that feature. It gives color, nutrition, and some flavor. I was generous with the pickle relish, so I omitted the white vinegar and sugar. The pickle relish provided enough of both.
