"Vicky's Mom's Warm Potato Salad Delicious salad, best served warm, but cold good too. My friend's Mom makes this, but improves it in the following way: Eliminate the pickle. Instead, very finely cho..." See morep two stalks celery & one medium very sweet onion. Place the chopped onion in the 2 cups mayo to marinate (it removes the raw onion taste) while u cook the potatoes & eggs. Cook potatoes till done (15 min or so). Cook eggs till done also. Drain potatoes & eggs. Peel eggs & chop. Put eggs in w/hot potatoes. Take two butter knives & hold them so u cut in a "criss cross" fashion to "cut/slightly smash" the potatoes. Add the mayo/onion mixture & the celery & mix lightly. If dry, add a bit more mayo to taste. Season w/salt/pepper to taste. This warm mixture sounds odd, but tastes heavenly. Perfect taste/texture combo. Excellent w/any type of sandwich, baked ham, brisket, meat loaf, roast/fried chicken, pork roast, hamburgers/hot dogs, etc. "
"This is one of my favorite ways to make potato salad and really my husband's favorite way to eat potato salad. I like to add a tablespoon or two of dijon mustard, some chopped green or red onion, some..." See more garlic powder/onion powder/fresh black pepper and add in the mayo gradually until it gets to the right consistancy. Depending on your potatoes, you might need either less or more than the recipe states. This is really a great base recipe to just play with and make more personal to you and your family's tastes. NOTE: This is a great base for Cold Baked Potato Salad, too!"
