Best Potato Salad Ever!

A couple weeks ago, I had a night to myself so I indulged in two of my favorite things: beauty products & potato salad. Yep, that's right: I would rather have a plate of Red Hot & Blue's Potato Salad than a bowl of ice cream or bar of chocolate. Determined to have it more frequently, I learned how to make it at home. Here's my version of the treasured recipe:

"Wanna-Be Potato Salad"

  • 10 red-skinned potatoes
  • 7 hard-boiled eggs, yolks discarded
  • 1/2 cup green onions, diced (more or less to your taste)
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 3/4 teaspoon celery seed (I opted to do a little more)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Cut each potato into 16th's (down the middle and then each half into 8 cubes). Boil potatoes until soft.
2. In a large bowl, combine the mayo, celery seed and salt.
3. Chop the hard-boiled egg whites into large chunks and add to mayo mixture.
4. When potatoes are fully cooked (soft but not mushy), drain and rinse with water. Cubes/pieces should hold their shape.
5. Add potatoes and green onions to mayo mixture.

Can be served warm (like RH&B) or stick it in the fridge for a cold version.

This is quite possibly my favorite blog posting of all times. I too am obsessed with Red, Hot, and Blue's potato salad and am oh-so-excited to try the at home version. When Darren asked me what I'd like for Christmas last year, I said a one quart tub of it. We are truly kindred spirits, my friend...
