Gramma's Potato Salad

This is the potato salad that I grew up on, and still my favourite. The Italian dressing gives it a unique kick of flavour.

  • 3-5 lbs Red Potatoes Chopped into ¾"-1" Chunks
  • 1 ½ Cups Italian Salad Dressing
  • 3 Green Onions Thinly Sliced
  • 4 Celery Ribs Thinly Sliced
  • 8 Radishes Thinly Sliced
  • ¾-1 Cup Full Fat Mayo
  • 5-6 Large Eggs Hard boiled and sliced
  • Ground Pepper


  • Boil potato cubes until tender enough to easily pierce with a fork, but still firm – about 30 minutes. Strain, and place into a large non-metallic bowl.
  • Pour Italian dressing over warm potato cubes, gently stir to coat, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Several hours before serving, add green onion, celery, and radish slices. Fold into potatoes.
  • Add mayo (¾ cup if you like a drier salad, more if you like it creamier), gently stir until potatoes and vegetables are evenly coated.
  • Gently fold in the egg slices, season with pepper to taste.
