Altie's Old Fashioned Sweet
Tasting Potato Salad With Dressing for Waldorf Salad & Deviled Eggs, Too!
This is my
mother's potato salad recipe. Most folks put mustard in their potato salad. I
don't like mustard which is why this is my favorite. Many others have
"converted" to this version, after trying it! I use the dressing for Deviled
Eggs and Waldorf Salad.
Altie's Old Fashioned Sweet Tasting Potato Salad
8 medium sized potatoes, peeled & boiled
5 - 6 hard
tsp garlic powder, opt.
tsp parsley flakes, opt
pepper to taste
Homemade Mayonnaise Dressing: Make up while your potatoes & eggs are boiling.
1 cup Mayonnaise (Don't use "salad dressing" - such as Miracle Whip!)
cup Sugar (I've started subt. with the "Splenda for Baking," that's 50% sugar.

for Susie's pickle juice see
Fire and Ice Sweet Pickle Recipe.]
Blend all dressing ingredients together with wire whisk till thick
& smooth. Store in a covered container in the frig. I sometimes make up extra to
have on hand for the other recipes it's used in.

the potatoes in a large bowl. Add the eggs, onion, seasonings & parsley & stir
together. Mix all ingredients with enough of the Homemade Mayonnaise to make it
very moist, since the warm potatoes will absorb it quickly. Add more if
the potatoes will break up as you mix them with the mayonnaise, becoming
"mashed" potato salad. That's the way it's supposed to look! Refrigerate several
hrs before serving allowing the flavors to blend. Serves 8-10

before serving. This salad may weep a little in-between, but just stir it well
before serving, each time.
