Potato Salad Recipe: How To Make Potato Salad Recipe – Potato salad is a commonly made Labor Day dish that can be found at festivals and barbecues across the United States on Labor Day weekend. There are many different ways to put together a potato salad, and the type that you choose to make will depend greatly upon your tastes and the tastes of those that you are cooking for.

Preparing potato salad is not all that difficult, but you have to be careful to follow the directions very specifically during preparation. Potato salad takes approximately 20 minutes to prepare, followed by 20 minutes of cooking, and will be ready to eat in less than four hours.

You will need 1 onion, 6 eggs, 1/8 teaspoon of celery seed, 10 red potatoes, 1/8 teaspoon paprika, a cup of mayonnaise, ¼ teaspoon of black pepper, half a cup of ranch dressing, 1 ½ salt teaspoons, 1/3 cup of pickle relish, 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard, and you may also choose to add pepperoncini’s or sliced black olives to the recipe.

First, set all six eggs in a saucepan next to one another. Fill the pan with water and cover the eggs by almost an entire inch. Place the pan on the stove and boil the eggs.
After the boil, remove the saucepan and let the eggs remain in the hot water for an additional 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove the eggs from the pan and let the pan cool under running tap water. Then, peel all of the eggs, and chop them once they are cooled.
Next, boil the potatoes in a large pot on high heat. After they have been cooking for a while, turn the heat down and let them continue to boil for an additional 20 minutes. Then, drain the water and cool the potatoes in the fridge.
The third step is just to mix and mash everything together. Cut the potatoes into the size you would like the chunks in the salad to be, and mix the rest of the ingredients into a bowl, well. Keep in mind that the dish will need at least two hours of refrigeration before being able to be served.

    And you would want to cool down an empty pan, why?
