“It’s Badass!” Man, there’s nothing quite like Potato Salad, I just love it. I love it so much that when my Dad would take us to a diner to get Cheeseburgers, I’d always ask if I could get Potato Salad instead of the Fries. They’d always oblige me and I was always happy eating my Burger with Potato Salad instead of French Fries, with my Coca-Cola. “Ah, the good old days.” This Potato Salad is really awesome with some Ribs or Barbecued Chicken. The contrast of the hot Chicken and its tangy Barbecue Sauce is awesome against the cool coldness of the mayonnaise dressed potatoes with scallions and the seasoning is one of the World’s most underrated culinary pairings of all. Well, you’re reading this and you know of this little secret, so go ahead and give it a try, you’ll be glad you did, it’s friggin awesome and this is The Best Potato Salad Ever! Tell all your friends!
6 large Baking Potatoes 2 Celery stalks, washed 6 Scallions, washed, dried and chopped 4 hard Boiled Eggs, peeled 2 tablespoons White Vinegar 1 & ¾ cups Real Mayonnaise 1 tablespoon Mustard, ¾ teaspoon Celery Seed ½ teaspoon each of Kosher Salt & Black Pepper ½ teaspoon Sweet Paprika
Peel the potatoes and cut into quarters. Place the potatoes in a pot and fill with water. Put 1 teaspoon of Salt in the water and cook potatoes with the water boiling until the potatoes when pierced with a fork are tender to the touch, about 12-14 minutes.
Once cooked, drain the potatoes in a colander, shake off excess water and let sit in the colander to cool for 15 minutes. Once the potatoes have cooled, dice into large diced pieces and place in a large glass or ceramic mixing bowl. Add the vinegar to the bowl and mix with the potatoes, and let the potatoes marinate in the vinegar for 10 minutes. Add the Salt, Black Pepper, and Celery Seeds to the bowl and mix.
Chop the Hard Boiled Eggs, add to the bowl and mix with potatoes. Add the Mustard and Scallions and mix.
Add the Mayonnaise and mix to fully incorporated. Sprinkle the Paprika over the Potato Salad, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for a at least 1 hour before serving.
Serve with Burgers, Barbecued Chicken or Ribs, with sandwiches or whatever you like.
