My mom makes great potato salad. She usually makes it for me when I come over in the summer since she's such a great mom. :) I decided to try to replicate her potato salad tonight, but of course it didn't taste the same! I don't normally have regular mayo in the house so I used Miracle Whip instead and I put in pickle juice (I thought my mom used pickle juice in hers but she uses it in macaroni salad, not potato). I thought my version still tasted good though. I would like to get my mom's version down someday!
Potato Salad (sorta kinda my Mom's version)
Inspired by my mother!
2 potatoes, peeled and chopped (I used red-skinned but really you can use any kind)
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
The following ingredients are all estimates since I go by taste:
1/2 - 3/4 cup Miracle Whip
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon pickle juice
1 teaspoon sugar
Boil potatoes for 12-15 minutes until fork tender. Drain water and put potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add hard-boiled eggs to potatoes. Mix together the Miracle Whip, mustard, pickle juice and sugar together. Adjust ingredients to your taste. Add mixture to the potatoes and eggs. Refrigerate.
