Grandma's Potato Salad
This recipe was originally posted last summer.. but with recent weather, BBQs, and a wicked craving for it.. figured it's about time to drag it back to the spotlight!
Lately, I've been on a mission to translate my family favorite "recipes" (no, that's not a misuse of quotation marks!) into actual recipes.
It's a bigger endevor than it sounds to be - my family writes down recipes like we cook. By that, I mean that "a handful of" or "some" are used as actual units of measurements, or any indication of actual quantity is left out completely. We add an ingredient till things look or taste right, which is fine when you're comfortable with what you're doing.. but not so hot for conveying a recipe to my blog readers!
Take, for instance, my Grandma's Potato Salad recipe. She makes the most amazing potato salad I've ever had, but this is her recipe, in its entirety:
boil red potatoes, cut in 4
Don't overcook them
Put in fridge, cover with italian dressing, let sit overnight
Take them out, add chopped green onion, celery, radishes, eggs (hardboiled and sliced)
Use Hellman's full fat mayo, don't use too much
See what I'm dealing with? LOL.
The recipe is far too great to NOT share with the world, so here it is:
More Recipes that Remind me of Gramma
Since originally writing this post, my gramma has sadly passed... but her memory lives on.
Here are a few recipes that remind me of her, whether as something she taught me to make, a replica of a retail treat we used to enjoy together, or one of my own recipes that she would request whenever I’d visit, as an adult.
