potato salad

April 11, 2011

My great-grandmother made the most delicious potato salad. So here it is… Nana Hoy’s amazing German potato salad recipe.

  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 c celery, diced
  • 2 strips bacon (streaky)
  • 1/4 c vinegar
  • 5 T mayo
  • 1 T sugar
  • salt & pepper

Cook potatoes with skins until tender but still firm. Dice bacon and fry until crisp. Add vinegar, mayo and sugar. Slice potatoes (or chunk them), add celery and onion and chopped egg (maybe quarter the egg). Pour dressing over potatoes wand season to taste with salt and pepper.

This salad is at its best served at room temperature. Never refrigerate before serving.
