  1. That is how I make mine too but I have to use Hellman's. I love potato salad with gumbo too--but then I like it to have onions in it. Thanks for the reminder--I don't make it nearly enough. Sheila in NC P.S. I like it warm too--it just tastes better to me!!

  2. I love my potato salad when it's warm. That's usually the only time I eat, is right after I make it. Then everyone else in the family eats it cold.

  3. I haven't made a lot of potato salad (don't know why), but this looks easy and good. Thanks

  4. I tend to make it more in the summer than any other time of the year. It's sort of a summertime staple I guess with all gatherings.

  8. I sure miss her Brandi!

    I don't know why Mama never sprinkled paprika on hers - it sure would have thwarted by spoon thievery LOL!

    Nanette, I guess a lot of folks in the south like really sweet potato salad, but I like mine with mayo for sure!

  10. Warm potato salad is the best! I love it, but it has to be Duke's.

    Isn't it funny how potato salad brings out all our quirks? LOL

  11. Oh, meant to say that potato salad with gumbo is really good, too. I just tried that for the first time this year. Good stuff.

  13. Hi Betsy! Yeah, it's really that way about a lot of food especially in the south. I also like Dukes.

    Thanks Mary!

  14. Your potato salad is calling my name! I haven't made it for a while, so I'd best get busy. This is how I make potato salad too, Mary, just like my Mom did! And, yes, it must be mayo. It's so special, making dishes that our mothers made; the memories are priceless!

  15. Hi Lynda! Every time that I make this, I always still lift a big spoon right out of it just as soon as it's done and all smoothed down. And I smile. Old habits die hard.

  19. I just put up potato salad at my blog today :D hubby and I made some up for a bbq later. My mom never had miracle whip in the house either so when I moved out I started buying it for sandwiches :D I rarely use it for anything else though. My mom and I both use Best Food mayo at least she used to :D I still do. I havent tried it with relish or mustard. Hmm, may have to try it that way, Carmen

  20. Welcome!! I don't have anything against Miracle Whip at all and I know a lot of people love it. Heck, I haven't tried it in years, so maybe my tastes have changed. I'm one of those southerners that likes my cornbread just a little sweet {gasp!} so who knows??!!

    It's the time of year for potato salad isn't it? Love the stuff, so I'll have to swing by and check out your post.

    Thanks for swinging by to visit!
