My Mama's Potato Salad

So this isn't what most people would consider a traditional Latin recipe, but I absolutely had to put it on here. This potato salad is my ABSOLUTE favorite recipe in the entire universe! When I was pregnant, I swear I ate it nearly every day!

It's so incredibly simple, but so delicious! Try it out - I'm sure you'll fall in love with it.

What You Need:
- 3 large Idaho potatoes
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1/2 tsp of yellow mustard
- 1 cup of mayonnaise
- 3 large eggs

What to Do:
- Peel and chop the potatoes into bite size pieces.
- Boil the potatoes for 15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and place into a bowl.
- To make it easy on yourself, boil the eggs in the same water as the potatoes.
- When the potatoes have cooled, add slices of the eggs.
- Add the mayonnaise and the mustard.

NOTE: I'm not 100% sure about the amount of mayonnaise to place in this dish. I usually just eyeball enough mayonnaise so that the potato salad is "white". :) My mom always says "if it's not white, there's not enough mayo". Put however much you feel comfortable with, but I always say - the more the better!

One Last Note: In an effort to eat healthier, I have tried to make this dish with low-fat mayonnaise, and in my opinion, it just doesn't taste the same. As a treat to all dieters out there - try it with regular mayonnaise first. And then the low-fat. Maybe you'll enjoy it more than I did.

  1. I will definitely have to try this recipe! I think if you're going to eat potato salad, you might as well just go all in and use real mayonnaise. It's like sugarless ice's just not the same.
