Classic Potato Salad Recipe


  • 4 cups potatoes, cooked, peeled and cubed (about 6 or 7 whole potatoes)
  • 1 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickles, finely chopped


Step 1

Boil potatoes whole, with the skins on, in salted water for about 15 to 20 minutes until they are tender in the middle when you prick with a fork. Do not overboil or the salad will be mushy.

Step 2

Cool the potatoes a bit then peel them, cut into cubes and place in a large bowl.

Step 3

In a separate smaller bowl combine the mayonnaise, mustard, celery seeds, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add the chopped eggs, onion, celery and pickles and mix together to combine.

Step 4

Pour dressing over the cubed potatoes and mix lightly so as not to break up the potatoes too much. Cover and chill until time to serve.
