Easy Potato Salad




Easy Potato Salad

This dish can be on your table in 30 minutes

  • 4 potatoes (cube 1/4 inch)
  • 3-4 tbsp mayonaise (I used 3)
  • 1-2 boiled egg (chopped, I used 1 egg)
  • 3 tbsp onions (chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp yellow mustard
  • 3-4 tsp sweet relish
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (garnish)
  • In a small pot add your egg to boil,  once it have boiled remove from the heat cover and set aside for 15 minutes the egg will continue to cook. 
  • Peel the potatoes and cube about 1/4 inch rinse well,  in a medium size pot fill with enough water to cover the potatoes,  on medium high heat once the potatoes start to boil turn the heat down on low and let cook for 8-10 minutes or until fork tender.  Do not over boil  your potatoes or you will be eating mashed potato salad, I am no not kidding.  
  • Once the potatoes are done you must work quickly using a colander pour the potatoes into the colander to rid of the hot water and pour the potatoes back into the pot and run very cold water over the potatoes so the potatoes will stop cooking.  You can also fill a glass bowl with cold water add ice once the potatoes are done using a colander pour the potatoes into the colander and then add the potatoes into the cold water bath this will cool the potatoes and stop the cooking process. 
  • In the mean time run cold water over your boiled egg to cool off chop and set aside using a colander let the cool potatoes drain off excess water add the potatoes into a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except the paprika.  Using a spatula mix well then using a fork I want you to smash the potato as if you are making mashed potatoes using this method you will thicken the potato salad to a smooth  thick consistency you will break up some of the potato cubes but not all leaving some cubes of potatoes.  Once this process is completed add the potato salad to a glass bowl with a cover sprinkle with the paprika and refrigerate until ready to serve.

*You will need about 3 tbsp of salt to salt the water for the potatoes when boiling.

I live in New York I am Married to Clifford aka Jack and have one daughter name Kaneen aka Nene and a beautiful Yorkie name Buttercup aka Butter, Stinkbutt and Grandma. I was raised and born in Brooklyn New York. I have a love for cooking and it is my passion as I have discovered and I would like to share it with you. I like just relaxing at home with my Buttercup while thinking of what dish I can try an tackle or in my backyard gardening. I love watching cooking shows Giada, Barefoot Contessa, The Neely's , The Pioneer Women, Rachel Ray, Paula Deen and Bobby Flay are my favorites. I love to talk to people face to face or on social media, twitter i just started and it is cool because you must say what you have to say short, sweet and fast you only get a few wpm. ( words per minute). I love house music also yes I do especially when I am driving in my car... This is a new journey that I am on and I known sometimes It may seem like a roller coaster from time to time but I am willing to try and explore new things and new recipes as well. Cooking is truly my passion I have known for a very, very long time and because I am a chatter box I guess blogging about my food and talking in general should be easy, well maybe.... I look forward to sharing the foods that I love to make and also some new ones along the way...
