Delicious Discoveries: Rustic Red Potato Salad

Today I’m taking you in the Kitchen for a rustic red potato salad recipe that is perfect for any summertime meal, picnic, or backyard barbeque! I prepared this simple and delicious potato salad recipe on the July Pledge drive on KIXE Channel 9 to promote our new local program Delicious Discoveries with Daniella Malfitano that is scheduled to premier very soon. This is an easy recipe to prepare and it doesn’t take more than 30 minutes from start to finish. The most difficult part of this recipe is letting it to sit in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to come together and resisting the urge to dive in right away! Remember the longer this salad sits, the better it will taste! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.



Rustic Red Potato Salad


4 cups red potatoes

3 eggs

½ cup chopped celery

¼ cup chopped red onion

¼ cup sweet pickle relish

½ cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons whole grain mustard

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Cook the red potatoes and hard boil the eggs. Dice the cooked potatoes and eggs once cool then dice the celery and red onion. Combine the diced vegetables with the potatoes and eggs in a large stainless steel mixing bowl. Make the dressing in a separate bowl by combining the pickle relish with the mayo, mustard, salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the potatoes, eggs and vegetables and mix well with a large spoon. Let the potato salad sit in refrigerator for about 30 minutes or longer before serving to allow the flavors to come together.
