I built a little different potato salad than what’s normal around here. This is a wetter salad and doesn’t contain mustard. It’s great, easy, and ranks high, may be my new normal. The ribs are leftovers, I’ll point you to their recipe.
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Potato Salad Parts
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup high dollar blue cheese dressing. Ranch works too.
  • 2.5 pounds of potatoes. Normally it’s 3 reg. bakers.
  • 4 boiled eggs. I do number of potatoes + 1
  • 4 slices thick cooked bacon cut in 1 inch pieces.
  • ¼ cup fine chopped purple onions
  • ½ cup cubed cucumber. ½ of one
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves fine chopped and or smashed
  • Dash of salt-n-pepper

Make Sum Salad
  1. Get a pot of room temp water on stove big enough to house your taters and eggs.
  2. Peel, clean, and cut potatoes into about 2 inch hunks.
  3. Add potatoes and egg to room temp water. Eggs on top.
  4. Turn heat on high. Doing heat this way will keep eggs from splitting when boiling.
  5. When boiling starts set timer for 10 minutes.
  6. In a bowl mix up purple onions, cucumber, garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper. If you can do this a day ahead of time it’s a lil better.
  7. At 10 minutes push fork in a potato. If it goes in easy they’re ready.
  8. Strain the potatoes and eggs.
  9. Put potatoes back in pot and leave eggs under running cool water in sink.
  10. When eggs are cool peeled throw in with potatoes.
  11. Add , mayonnaise, dressing, and bacon.
  12. Strain ¼ cup of the cucumber mixture and add to pot.
  13. With a potato masher mash everything together but leaving lumpy.
  14. Roll the potato salad with a spoon in pot to make sure it’s all incorporated.
  15. Great on day one better on day two.
  16. Splash of hot sauce is up to you!
