This No Mayo Potato Salad is for those folks who don’t care for mayo in their potato salad!
I recently went to a party for the daughter of a long-time friend. It was her first communion and they had a big, family-style gathering afterwards.
I originally had developed this recipe for the Fourth of July and was going to title it, “Red, White & Blue Potato Salad”. But seeing as how we were in the middle of moving, I had to make this in mid May to make sure it went live here while I was busy moving boxes and fixing up the new house to make it livable. The day I made this just happened to be the day before this friend’s party, so I made it, photographed it and packed it up to take to the party the next day.
As it turns out, there are people in this world who don’t enjoy mayonnaise in their potato salad, and a few of them happened to be at this party. So my potato salad was well received with at least 2 mentions of them enjoying the fact that it didn’t have mayonnaise in it. A happy accident! I didn’t have the recipe handy to give them because this blog post was still in the works. But here it is now for all to print and enjoy!
Aaah….. the life of a food blogger. Fourth of July food in May. At least it wasn’t December!
Recipe note: Potatoes need a lot of salt. So don’t be surprised if you have to use a lot to really get the flavors going here. This is a simple recipe with simple ingredients that taste wonderful together. But the salt is totally necessary simply because the potatoes really soak everything up!
