Potato Salad anyone?

Postby reborin » Sun Sep 03, 2006 2:35 pm

Ok - I'm trying to make a REALLY great potato salad. Mine (recipe blelow) came out too sweet and mustardy. I guess if I used actual measurements that might help lol... anyway, if anyone has any really good recipes for pot sal., be a pal and post them up for me!

*8-10 med/small potatoes (not new pots, just idahos) slow cooked
*3 hard boiled eggs (optional of course)
*1 roasted pepper or about half a bag of frozen tri-colored peppers, roasted
*1/2 large onion or 1 med/small onion chopped fine (small dice)
*About 1 heaping Tbs of garlic granules (I like these better than fresh because it blends better)
*1 Tbs Tumeric ('d reduce this next time to about 1 tsp)
*2Tbs sugar (maybe less of this too - like 1Tbs)
*1 good dollup (2-3 Tbs?) of red wine vinegar
*1 tsp salt (something like sea salt w/a strong flabor is better)
*Optional - I added some seaweed spice, which is not salty but adds something - special lol.
*1 TBS dijon mustard
*24 oz mayo (or vego or whatever - I used 1 whole jar of organic mayo)
*1-2 stalks of celery (depending how much you like celery, of course), diced fine

I think that is all I used. I don't like pickles, so didn't add any pickles or pickle juice, but that's a possibility too...I think it's endless how many varities there are of pot sal. So...anyone up for sharing?
When we can't find peace in ourselves it is vain to look for it elsewhere.
