"This yummy potato salad is a favorite of mine, and one I make often during the summertime. Sometimes I even make it in the winter when I make burgers or hot dogs for dinner. Every time I bring it to a get-together I am asked for the recipe. Try it and see for yourself how good it is!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Peel potatoes, and boil until just done, about 20 minutes. (Just until your fork can be inserted all the way through the potato. You don't want them mushy).

Step 2

Drain well and let cool, then dice or slice potatoes. (I like a small dice, about 1/2"x1/2"). The potatoes will cut nicely once chilled and won't fall apart.

Step 3

Mix other ingredients, and add to chilled potatoes.

Step 4

Let set in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving for flavors to meld.

Step 5

Serve chilled.


No special items needed.

So much flavor and texture in this lovely potato salad! I mixed the mayo and vinegar etc together, then added the veggies, olives etc into it, stirring as I went. Then added it to the potatoes. It made it so easy to get everything mixed up good. My new go to now, as it has so much flavor compared to other potato salads.

Great flavor in this salad. We all loved it! I used 6 eggs in mine and no green peppers, because I didn't have any. We especially loved the olives. My new go to for this summer!

I made this earlier this morning and will be bringing it to a barbecue tonight. I just tasted it after sitting in the fridge for about 7 hours and it is so yummy! Just the right amount of everything!
