I prefer red potatoes, too, @musiclady   888high58888

For most applications of potatoes I'm a Russet no-skin man, but for Potato Salad it's red, skins-on all the way.  I cannot explain this discrepancy.  :shrug:
I will NOT comply.

Do you guyz boil the redskin potatoes with celery stalk stem leaves?   It's the only way to fly.

Or does the celery salt make up for that?

...because they make a world of difference as a simple side dish with butter, etc..

You soak the warm, cut up potatoes (I leave the skins on) in Italian dressing for several hours before you add the rest of the ingredients.

Best potato salad I have ever eaten.............. if I do say so myself.............. and I DO!   ^-^

Nothing wrong with knowing what’s good, even if you made it yourself, lol.  I just might have to try that.

It's not like you eat mayo out of the container, like, oh say Spam.  And if you're eating deviled eggs then you really don't have a problem with mayo.

@RoosGirl

About eating mayo out of the container—-don’t look at the link at the bottom of that article.  It’ll make lunch come back up.

most folks here probably wouldn't even recognize the yellow stuff that is homemade (real) mayo...

@roamer_1

Nasty.

Mine is very close to that -I used cut up redskins (skin on), marinated in Italian dressing while still warm, then celery, onions, boiled egg whites, then add a combination of mayo, sour cream and sieved egg yolks and spicy brown mustard, and season with salt and celery seed.

I can give specific amounts if anyone wants the recipe.  It's WAY better, IMO, than 'normal' potato salad.   ^-^

I do—-I might take some to a family cookout to see if it beats my MIL’s.

OK............. here you go, @CatherineofAragon ....... (and anyone else who likes tasty potato salad...this has been adapted by me from the original).

Sour Cream Potato Salad  (I double it and use more potatoes because the mayo/sour cream is plentiful).

7 medium redskin potatoes in jackets
1/3 C Italian dressing
3/4 C celery, sliced
1/3 C chopped onions
4 eggs, hard cooked
1 C mayonnaise
1/2 C sour cream
1 1/2 tsp spicy brown mustard
Salt and celery seed to taste

While potatoes are warm, pour dressing over and chill 2 hours
Add celery and onion,  chop egg whites, add
Sieve yolks and combine with mayonnaise, sour cream and mustard
Fold into salad
Add salt and celery seed to taste
Chill 2 hours

Voila!!  Best potato salad in the universe!  And now I have become very hungry!  ^-^

That is a very good question, @DCPatriot !  I've never done that, but it makes sense that the celery seed would give the same flavor...

How many celery stalks do you add with the potatoes??

LOL!  I just rip off a half dozen leaf tops from one of the stalks on display and put them in the bag with my potatoes.   :laugh:

Of course not, he shoplifts.
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.
