Our favorite (no onion) Baked Potato Salad - this classic potato salad has the staple mayo, mustard and eggs... but no onions or relish. It's made with baked potatoes which helps keep them firm and we love keeping the skins on too!
I'm sort of picky when it comes to potato salad. I don't like onions in it. Especially the raw crunchy kind. I also don't like relish in it. Not sweet relish - not dill relish - no relish in my potato salad. So, after tinkering with potato salad over the years, I've finally found a recipe that we love (all of us - including super picky me).
When I make this potato salad, I never use less than 4 or 5 pounds of potatoes and I never have one drop of leftovers. I made it recently when my brother and his wife were over for supper. We had Grilled BBQ Ribs as the main dish...and while there were leftover ribs...there was no leftover Potato Salad.
In fact, there was arguing over who was going to get the last serving! That's saying a lot for my meat-loving family!
There are a few things that I do that I think makes this potato salad special. First of all, I don't boil the potatoes, I bake them. That keeps them firm and they hold their shape and texture so much better.
I also grate the eggs instead of chopping (click over here on my How to Chop an Egg in 5 Seconds to watch the video!). Not only is this waaay faster and easier - it also tastes better. I know, I know, how is that possible? I don't know why - but I'm telling you to trust me on this - it makes the potato salad better!
So... here you go... my very best potato salad recipe. It's super delicious, easy potato salad! World's Best...according to my family!
So, how do you like your potato salad? Lots of onion? More mustard, less mayo? Hot or cold?
