It’s recipe day for our backyard barbeque! We have a great menu line up and I’m going to share how to make the most heavenly potato salad with you!
Of all the potato salad recipes I’ve tried over the years, this one is by far the best!!
I came across this recipe probably 20 years ago, and made a few changes to fit our taste.
It is definitely a crowd pleaser and is often requested by friends and family for events.
If you are coming over from Stacy at Bricks N Blooms welcome! Her blueberry mojito looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it.
We have a great menu line up for you this month, that you don’t want to miss.

ingredients for heavenly potato salad
7 medium potatoes
4-5 eggs, boiled and chopped
3/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2-3 celery stalks, diced
1 cup mayonaise
2 tablespoons dill pickle relish
1 teaspoon celery seed
salt and pepper to taste
directions for how to make heavenly potato salad
Peel potatoes, cut into chunks and boil in large saucepan until soft (about 15-20 minutes).
Obviously, the size you cut your potato pieces will determine how chunky your potato salad is and also how long it takes to cook them.
Meanwhile, chop boiled eggs, celery and red onion and add to large serving bowl.
Add mayonnaise, dill pickle relish, and celery seed.
Drain potatoes and add to mixture then season with salt and pepper to taste.
I like to serve my warm, but you can certainly refrigerate if you prefer it cold. And refrigerate any leftovers.
This is SO good, chances are there won’t be any!

serving idea for potato salad
I was actually supposed to make the appetizer for this months menu. I love this potato salad recipe so much and really wanted to share it with you.
So, I decided to serve the potato salad in small individual mason jars as an appetizer serving.
Obviously, you can serve it in a large serving bowl, as well. It tastes just as good either way!
