    This is my favorite Potato Salad recipe! Great stuff!

    Ingredients

    • 6 eggs
    • 10 red potatoes
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
    • 1/3 cup dill pickle relish
    • 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1/3 cup chopped celery (optional)
    • 1/4 cup pepperoncini (optional)
    • 1/4 cup sliced black olives (optional)

    Directions

    1. Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water; cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel and chop the cooled eggs.
    2. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and refrigerate until cold. Peel and cube once cold.
    3. Stir together the mayonnaise, ranch dressing, relish, mustard, salt, pepper, paprika, and celery seed in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs, potatoes, onion, pepperoncini, and olives; stir until evenly mixed. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

    My wife makes a hot potato salad (cooked onions, bacon, vinegar and brown sugar)--German-style. We both agree it is far preferable to the mayonnaise-based cold version.

    I make one that uses potatoes, green onions, bacon, parsley, apple cider vinegar, and mustard seeds. To cook the potatoes you grill them. Yes, it is a German style potato salad. It is good cold, but better warm.
