Old-Fashioned Potato Salad Recipe

During the summer months, it seems like we are invited to a picnic or family gathering every other weekend. One of the dishes I like to take to these type of gatherings are homemade Potato Salad. Now I am not going to lie to you...this recipe does take some time to make...but your cooking efforts will be well rewarded with a ton of compliments.

Old-Fashioned Potato Salad Recipe

You will need 7 large potatoes that have been cooked and diced for this recipe. Once done, set aside and work on the dressing.

How To Make The Dressing

1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup white vinegar
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon yellow or dijon mustard

Combine all of the above dressing ingredients in a large saucepan. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

How To Finish It Up

1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

In a medium-sized bowl, combine together the chopped onion, mayonnaise and the chopped hard-boiled eggs. Stir in the prepared potato salad dressing. Fold in the cooked, diced potatoes. Cover your bowl and refrigerate for 4 hours before serving to allow all of the flavors to infuse.
