A little bit of me…my Mom and…my Mother-in-Law. This Potato Salad is one amazing recipe. My Mom used to boil the potatoes whole, then dice…I kind of like my mother-in-law’s version bit better. Dice, then cook. This technique cuts the cooking time by almost half. I also love to dice everything super small. Miracle Whip is the base…lightened up with just a touch of sour cream! This recipe is a perfect side for grilled hot dogs, burgers, and even fried chicken! I also serve every Easter with ham.

Peel and dice the potatoes. Add to a pot of cold, lightly salted water and bring to a low boil. Cook until the potatoes have softened, but still hold their shape. Drain and lay on paper towels to cool and dry.

While the potatoes are cooking, cut up the celery and onions. Allow to drain on paper towels to release any excess water. Dice up the hard boiled eggs.

Once the potatoes have cooled completely, grab a bowl and combine the minced celery, onions and relish. The amount of relish will depend on how much you like. I usually use anywhere between one to two tablespoons. Add in the Miracle Whip and one tablespoon of the sour cream. Combine. Add in the diced eggs and a tablespoon of the fresh parsley. Fold gently. Add in the potatoes and the remaining tablespoon of sour cream. Fold, very gently, so as not to break up the potatoes. Taste for salt.

Garnish with a touch more fresh parsley. This Potato Salad will easily become one of your favorite side dishes. Such a compliment to so many meals. ENJOY!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
