PA Dutch Potato Salad


I grew up eating my Mom’s version of potato salad with huge chunks of potatoes, hard boiled eggs, mayo, mustard and veggies. Warm. Yes you read it correctly, it was served warm and leftovers were eaten cold! Now wait, that’s not right. I ate it warm because I couldn’t wait! :)
I still sneak a little before it is cold even though now I know better, but its that good!

    I love warm potato salad! And you know, I'd rather eat it warm then cold. I used to do the same thing to my mom. When I knew she was making potato salad I was right there waiting for the first spoonful……I love the big chunks of potato and egg you put in this salad.

    It sounds really good! And I used to eat my mom's potato salad warm also, but just a taste or my mother would say we wouldn't have any for the company! I don't usually make potato salad, but will try this one! Enjoy!

      Hi Terra, I've had potato salad with dill pickles and dill weed. I like the it that way. I can't think about July 4th and not think potato salad and don't get me started on baked beans!

    Wow, this looks just like the one I make, except it's missing the relish. Oh, and I usually don't add carrots.

    I am 73 years old. I have always made potato salad similar to this (without carrots but with finely chopped dill pickles). This is the way my mother made it as well as her mother. Great and delicious potato salad!!
