I’m Going To Show You How I Make My Version Of Southern Style Potato Salad.


  • Russet Potatoes
  • Some Green Onion
  • Some Dried Mustard
  • Few Eggs
  • Yellow Onion
  • Some Black Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Some Mayonnaise
  • Some Mustard
  • Dill Relish
  • Some Pickle Juice


1I’m going to start off with some russet potatoes. I’m going to place my potatoes into a large pot I’m going to leave my potatoes whole as you can see and now I’m going to start pouring in some cool water I want to add just enough water to cover up my potatoes and then I’m going to boil these potatoes over high heat until they are nice and fork tender. Once my potatoes are done I’m going to drain the water.

2I’m going to let these sit until they’re cool enough for me to handle because I will peel those using my hands and while the potatoes are cooling down I’m going to chop up some onion for my potato salad I really like green onion I use the green parts and the white parts if you’re not a fan of green onion you can use yellow or white I’m also going to be using some celery and fYI I did rinse and wash my celery and onion before I chop them up I’m going to chop this up nice and fine and I’m going to peel my potatoes using my hands so once the potatoes are nice impaired.

3I’m going to grab a knife and I’m just going to cut my potatoes some people like the potato salad mushy some people like it chunkier if you like a mushy put your potatoes up if you like it chunky you believe it just like I have mine why my potatoes boiled I actually bloat up a few eggs and these are them I’m just going to crumble them up using my whisk there and once I’m done crumbling up the eggs I’m going to add the eggs into the bowl along with my potatoes so followed by the egg.

4So I’m going to start adding in my green onion and don’t forget if you’re not a fan of green onion you can use a yellow onion or white and I also add it in my celery at this time I’m going to start sprinkling in my seasonings I have some pepper I’m using black pepper some salt garlic pepper and not garlic pepper garlic powder and in powder and that is enough season for me season it to your taste.

5After I’m done seasoning this stuff I’m going to make my dressing for my potato salad so you’ll need some mayonnaise I’m using best foods aka Hellmann’s and you’re also going to need some mustard I’m using regular yellow mustard followed by the mustard I’m going to add in some dill relish and I will also be using sweet relish as well if you want to just use one of the two you certainly can do so just double it and now I’m going to add in some pickle juice.
