Family favorite redskin potato salad recipe

This recipe will easily replace any home-made potato salad you currently make. It's easy, inexpensive, fresh, and seems to please every taste bud it comes in contact with. We make this for cook-outs and holiday get together's. It's a little fancy, we think from the dill, but you can pair it nicely with any main dish, even hot dogs! Our favorites to put it with are juicy grilled burgers, saucy ribs, fresh boiled corn on the cob, rib-eye steaks, even Alaskan King Crab legs! And I have yet to meet a kid that doesn't like!

If you are feeding a large crowd, and require a bigger quantity, simply double the recipe. Makes a great side dish for potlucks! You may want to double the recipe regardless. This side dish requires willpower to avoid a 2nd helping!

Family favorite redskin potato salad recipe

Make it a family favorite for your family

  1. Wash/rinse your redskin potatoes, quarter and cube them with a sharp, but safe knife. Place the potatoes in a pot of room temperature water, salt the water generously, bring to a boil, and continue to boil for another 10-15 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are boiling, dice your red onion, celery, and dill.
  3. Make your sauce by mixing the mayo, salt, pepper, milk, and the Dijon mustard. Whisk that all together.
  4. When the potatoes are done, drain and rinse with cold water, then toss while still warm with the red wine vinegar in a large bowl.
  5. Add all remaining ingredients and toss/stir well.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator until cold. Preferably 3 hours.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste, then serve with burgers, ribs, or any other great main dish!

      I really need to get a new phone, I think it takes horrible photos, but it's the easiest way for me to upload them. The salad despite the pictures is really good, especially if you love fresh dill! :) Thanks both of you for the comments.

      Your photo really makes the deal for me. I love salads containing vinegar - I love the tangy taste. Great share!
