Whether hosting or attending a BBQ, this quick and tasty potato salad recipe is sure to please!
Woo hoo! We officially have two graduates here at Casa Watkins! Thanks so much for sticking with me as I took a bit of a break to enjoy the early summer with the family AND celebrate Pink’s high school graduation along with Nugget’s preschool graduation. We hosted about 50 people early June to celebrate Pink’s achievements and her 18th birthday! Two milestones within 4 days. I originally had planned to have the party catered, but then decided to do the cooking myself once the guest list surpassed 30. It turned out to be a much better idea and I had the opportunity to cook some of Pink’s favorite foods including my easy pasta salad (stay tuned for that recipe). Today, I’m sharing my signature quick and tasty potato salad recipe!
As soon as the warm weather begins, I receive multiple requests to make my potato salad recipe. Many times it’s at the last minute! So, this recipe is perfect for those times when you need a quick side dish or suddenly decide to head to a BBQ. There are a few potato salad recipes I have saved away in my recipe arsenal, but this is my most simplistic and most requested potato salad! If you can spare about 30-45 minutes (depending on the size of potatoes you use), you can create this easy potato salad recipe.
Quick Potato Salad Recipe
I am a big fan of potato salads. Whether they have diced veggies, peppers, eggs, or relish you can be sure I’m going to eat it. My mother’s potato salad is my favorite and my grandmother’s comes right afterward. The both use a combination of peas, carrots, and beets along with more veggies. It’s absolutely divine! Maybe one day they will be willing to share their recipes and when I receive them, rest assured I will share it with you! Unfortunately, they don’t write any recipes down so I have to be patient enough to wait for it. I know I get frustrated when my kids continue to ask the same question, so I’m working REALLY hard not to do that with my mother…… really hard! 🙂 However, I did get loads of compliments from my mom when I served my easy potato salad recipe at Pink’s party.
I know you will enjoy this quick and tasty potato salad recipe friends! Be sure to give me a holler in the comments with your thoughts on the recipe. Also, if you have some favorite potato salad ingredients you love, feel free to share! I’m always looking for new potato salad recipes. Happy cooking!
