Classic Potato Salad

By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

My mom was the queen of salads! She always made the best potato and macaroni salads ever! It took me MANY years to get it right, but now… I make pretty good ones, too! This potato salad takes me back to my childhood, picnics with friends, camping… weekends in the summer.

I hope if you make it you enjoy it as much as we do! It will go so well with the pork we are having tonight!

Classic Potato Salad


6 large yellow potatoes, peeled and cubed

6 eggs, hard boiled and peeled

½ sweet onion , diced

2 stalks celery chopped

2 carrots, chopped

½ cup sour cream

¾ cup mayonnaise (real mayo)

1 tbsp yellow mustard

2 tsp celery salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

Cracked black pepper to taste

Sprinkle of paprika for color on top


In a large pot boil potatoes until fork tender, not mushy.

In a small pot boil carrots for one minute. Placed rest of chopped veggies and peas into a colander. Drain carrots over the rest of the veggies.

Place in large bowl and set aside.

Slice two of the eggs and set aside. The four remaining eggs, remove yolks and cut egg white into cubes. Put cut up egg whites in with the potatoes.
