Many people are known for a signature dish. They make something that is so fabulous that they are asked…..no begged….to make it all the time. Such is the case with my Mother-In-Law’s (MIL) potato salad.
My in-laws have a nice big yard and are the only ones in the family with a pool, so their place is often the gathering spot during the summer. Whatever the reason for the get together, my MIL is always asked to make her potato salad. She smiles and never fails to produce a nice big bowl of it. Others have tried to make it, but hers is truly the best.
This stuff is the crack of the picnic table, you can’t get enough.
I had petite red potatoes and Miracle Whip on hand, but went out to get the medium potatoes and Helmann’s Mayo to be true to the recipe.
Boiling up the potatoes.
Oh man….soooooooo goood. I asked my wife if it was close to what her mother makes, and she said I nailed it!
