My mom's potato salad. YUM! This recipe has always been very vague. Mom knows what it is supposed to look and taste like...she doesn't need measurements. I tried to come up with the correct measurements, but as mom would say, 'dress and season to taste..'
3 lb. red potatoes, cubed
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
1/4-1/3 cup green olive juice
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1-2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Cook cubed potatoes in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, until just tender. Cool potatoes completely, then add onion and celery.
Add olive juice to mayonnaise until runny (about the consistency of ranch dressing). Add desired amounts of dill, onion powder and garlic powder. Pour mixture over cool potatoes and mix gently. Refrigerate to blend flavors.
