Potato salad recipes

Here are our best potato salad recipes. Some are traditional recipes for potato salad and we offer some newer versions as well.

Many families have favorite potato salads and the recipes are passed down through the generations. 

My husband's mother had her way of making potato salad; my mother had a different recipe for potato salad. 

Neither of them wrote their recipe down; they just "knew how to make it."

We continue to make a traditional type of potato salad that we think combines the best of both. That recipe is below.

Classic Potato Salad


  • 5 to 6 medium potatoes, (about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds), peeled, cubed and cooked
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery 
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion 
  • 3 eggs, hard-boiled, sliced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar 


Combine mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, sugar, and pepper in a large bowl. Add potatoes and other ingredients; toss gently to combine. (Reserve a few hard-boiled egg slices for garnish.) Cover and chill for 2 or more hours for best flavor.

6 to 8 servings

There are hundreds of varietys of potato salad. Many are served chilled however there are also many tasty recipes for warm potato salads. 

You will find some of those under the German Potato Salad and Amish Potato Salad links.

And here is a potato salad recipe from Mr. Food.
