This is my absolute favorite potato salad and I have been eating this since I was a little girl This is a recipe straight from my grandma so you know it’s the best! This old fashioned potato salad is creamy, made with mayonnaise and sour cream. It also has hard boiled eggs and dill pickle, a winning combination if you ask me!
It’s super easy to put together and I promise it will be a winning salad to take to any summer bbq or picnic! This dish always makes an appearance at our summertime family get togethers. It just wouldn’t be summer without this potato salad. A few other things perfect for summer picnics and bbq would be this Broccoli Bacon and Grape Salad, Creamy Coleslaw, Bacon Baked Beans or this Parmesan Garlic Grilled Corn.
There are a lot of different potato salads out there and while they are all really great I just keep coming back to this recipe. Maybe because it’s been in the family and I grew up eating it, but I think it’s because it’s a classic. Sometimes it’s just hard to beat a classic! That’s kind of been my mission this year for the blog. To bring you guys more of the classics. I know they are basic recipes and nothing new but sometimes a person just needs to get back to the basics and stop trying to make something already great- better.
Often times when I do that it just makes the dish not so great and I really regret it. So, if you guys don’t mind I plan on sharing some simple and basic recipes with you over the course of the summer. Things like banana muffins, bbq sauces, basic rubs for meat, flaky buttermilk biscuits and other various simple recipes to make a meal great.
My hopes are to fill your back pockets with these basic but really great recipes so you can always pull together a really great home cooked meal. Whether it be from backyard picnics to a casual sit down Sunday supper with the family.
So, keep this old fashioned potato salad recipe handy this summer because a classic never goes out of style!
