After buying countless potato salads at the grocery that were subpar, often with uncooked potatoes, we decided it was time to attempt our own. As usual, I searched for a recipe that contain many of the desired ingredients and then I adapted it a bit to our tastes. I ended up settling on Cooking Light's Classic Potato Salad.
First we started out by cooking the potatoes to the consistency that we like, which is firm yet tender. I also boiled the eggs in another pan. While those cooked, I prepped the celery (btw, we added about 3 times the amount of celery because we love the added crunch) and the red onion. I also drained off the pickle relish (I used dill instead of sweet because I don't like sweet pickle relish, and we already had dill in the house). I then tossed everything into a bowl.
Then I moved onto whisking the dressing, which was made up of cider vinegar, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, salt and pepper.
The end results were fantastic, although I thoroughly expect that we will start playing with the favors some more in future attempts.
