My husband’s family loves enjoying this classic potato salad at family get togethers! My husband volunteered to make this for a recent party. Whether it’s a big family party or a potluck, this is an easy recipe that makes a great side dish for a lot of people! We love enjoying potato salad at summer cook outs!
How to Make Great Potato Salad
I asked my husband for tips on making this family favorite dish. He said, “Potato salad isn’t about measuring out ingredients, it’s about feel or what your taste preference is.” And I had to pause because he just doesn’t use the word feel or feelings very often.
I collected myself and asked him to explain more about the feel of a great potato salad. He dug deep and replied, “If it needs more salt, add more salt, if it needs more moisture add more mayo, for a little more crunch add a little more celery.”
At this point some of you are thinking, wow he should have his own cooking show. Two things you should know about Farmer Joe, he’s not a man of many words, so the shows would be short. Secondly, I asked him why the pieces of celery were so big. I was curious if that’s also part of the family tradition? He replied, “Nope, it’s just the best I could do. I’m not very good at chopping.” Any further interest in him hosting or serving as a guest on a cooking show, just message me on any social channel, I’ll serve as his agent.
