I only make German Potatoe Salad (which is without Mayo)
and can be eaten warm or cold.

Boil potatoes with skin on (scrub clean before).
Boil until semi- soft.
Drain water, and let cool.
Peel, and slice into thin slices.
Season with pepper, salt, a little oil and white vinegar.
Add finely diced onions, and fried up, crispy bacon.
Mix carefully.

Please note that this salad tastes best, when it sits overnight in the fridge, and is consumed the next day.....all the seasonings have "fused"....
Despite the bacon, it definitely is a healthier version of the salad.

I make one kind with white skinned potatoes, egg, sweet pickles, onion, celery (or seed) with miracle whip, yellow mustard, vinegar, and sweet pickle juice.

The other kind I make with red skin potatoes (not peeled), onion, egg, celery, dill, parsley, mayo, sour cream, and brown mustard.

Not organic, but the WalMart SuperCenter sells a pre-made Amish Potato Salad that we really like when I'm short on time.

This is my son's recipe and it's a nice change from "mayo" based.

Red skinned potatoes (skins on)
Red onion
Chopped garlic
Oregano
Red wine vinegar
Oil-can use olive
Salt/Pepper
Feta cheese

Cook potatoes, drain. While hot add garlic, onion, oregano, vinegar, oil, salt/pepper.

Refrigerate and toss every few hours.
Top w/feta cheese.

Put whatever you like in it...but use wasabi mayonnaise

I usually use red potatoes (skin on), green onions, green olives, boiled eggs, red radishes, wasabi mayo, dijon mustard, and salt/pepper.

How I make it is simple and mild, but good. Kraft* mayo, a few splashes of rice vinegar*, salt, pepper, a few sprinkles of celery salt. Chopped celery and a little chopped onion. You can put in some fresh herbs if you have them..parsley or chive, etc. or hard boiled eggs.

I never add mustard to potato salad.


*no substitutions

i do this. mayo, mustard, diced celery, chopped black olives (optional becuase they might darken the salad and people might not eat it), GREEN onion, light salt, lighter pepper, and occasionally i throw in dill or diced dill pickles.

i make the "sauce" first by mixing all the ingredients together, then i pour that into the potatoes as i stir them, making sure not to mash them.

voila, very simple and always a hit.

The best one I've ever had came from a Williams Sonoma cookbook my mother had. It was called something like Potato Salad Provencal.

It had a red wine vinaigrette dressing, and chunks of left-over roast beef, capers, parsley, green onion, and I don't know what else. It was definitely a main course potato salad.

I'm going to have to find the recipe!!
