Since my partner is very picky about what he likes in his potato salad, I have made my own version of home-made PS and it's always a hit with friends and family. Not for the calorie faint but it's real, real good! Ingredient quantities are variable to taste. I think it's the garlic that takes it to the next level. Try it! For best flavor allow it to set overnight in the fridge. Using a mix of yellow, white, and red potatoes is really the best.

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Allow to cool.
  2. Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water and cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel once cold. Dice the eggs.
  3. In a salad bowl, lightly toss the potatoes, eggs, artichoke hearts, garlic, Parmesan cheese, croutons, Dijon mustard, rice vinegar, and mayonnaise until all ingredients are coated with dressing.

Simple to make and absolutely spectacular. When I read the recipe I thought I would add some scallion, but when I tasted it before adding the scallion, I realized that it doesn't need it. I did add the scallion only because I had it chopped and ready to go, and it was lovely with the scallion as well. But this recipe is actually perfect just the way it's written.

Love this. The only thing I changed was I did not add croutons. I agree it is the garlic that takes it to next level. Thank you for sharing.

Really nice recipe with not too much mayo. Love the combo of potato, artichoke and garlic. Ate it almost right away with some left over to taste again tomorrow after flavors have had a chance to meld. I imagine the flavor will just get better.
