Classic Potato Salad Recipes

They may take a little time to make, but these classic potato salad recipes are very popular and easy to make.You don't need any fancy ingredients to make the basic version of this dish, just start with potatoes and mayonnaise, add some vegatables of your choice, season with a little salt or other condiment and you have your own unique version.

Here's an easy potato salad recipe with some step by step instructions...

6 hard boiled eggs

I added a few extra veggys:

Purple onion
Orange peppers

Peel and boil enough potatoes to fill your salad bowl. Rinse cooked potatoes under cold water and let cool. When cooled, put the potatoes back in the pot and chop them into roughly even sized pieces.

Peel and chop 4 of the hard boiled eggs and add them to the pot.
Chop the vegatables and add a little at a time until you have an even mix.
Add mayo a little at a time while mixing it into the salad.
When you have the right consistency, sample and add salt to taste. For this salad I added a touch of louisiana sauce to give it a little zip.
When ready, transfer salad to your bowl, peel and slice the remaining 2 eggs and place on top of the salad. Garnish with a little paprika if desired and you are ready to eat.

There's lots of ways to tweak this salad, such as using any gourmet mustard you might have, or maybe you have some spicy sauces in your pantry. I find that the best potato salad recipes are made by experimenting with different ingredients as you put it together.
