This recipe is my version of classic southern potato salad, which one day I’ll make and post on ONO. I like to use dill pickles instead of the traditional sweet pickles. For variety, I add thinly sliced cucumbers, and I usually leave the skins on the potatoes. It makes the dish kind of rustic.
Nearly Southern Style Potato Salad Recipe
- 2 pounds potatoes about 5-6 medium, cubed
- 1/2 large onion diced,
- 1/2 cucumber peeled and sliced thin
- 1/2 cup chopped dill pickle
- 6 hard boiled eggs chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- Salt & pepper
Place potatoes in a large saucepot and add enough water to cover by at least 1 inch. Generously salt the water, and bring potatoes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat; drain and cool completely.
In a large bowl, combine chopped egg, mayonnaise, pickle, and onion. Add potatoes and cucumbers to the egg mixture, and toss until potatoes are well-coated. Adjust salt and pepper as needed. Best served chilled.
