    Ohhhh. I took “that’s it” to mean that was it. Six eggs to how many potatoes?

    6-8 medium white all purpose...I go by what's in the bowl during peeling. It's very important that the potatos cool before assembly or the Whip will start to separate. Usually by day 3 you can see water on the bottom.


    A pile of potato salad and a grilled Angus Delmonico steak is hard to beat.

    Yep I love the stuff. I use celery, mayo, eggs, mustard for sure, green onions are great but I seldom have them around. Black olives too. I may or may not put onion in.
    Wish I had a good recipe for German Potato salad. Mom used to make a good one.

    No. Now, my wife might like it that way, but her favorite food is mashed potatoes. I'm from the camp of "less processed the better", so I even have to make my egg salad sandwich differently than she does.

    I make it bite by bite sometimes. A bit of raw potato, a black peppercorn, a cornichon, washed down with a splash of vinegar.

    Less processed = don't chew!

    I do even less work than that. I'll just take a thin slice of potato, lay it on my forearm, and ingest it by means of osmosis. Maybe a little sprinkle of Cajun seasoning.

    Hah! Yeah basics. But Mom's had a little cabbage in it and it had to "stew" at least overnight. You don't want the potatoes cooked too well either.

    Nice.

    I prefer German cole slaw to creamy cole slaw too.

    I love the stuff. Our basic take is like the Hellman’s recipe though a touch of mustard, olives, pickles etc is welcome. My dear and now departed MIL liked to double the mayonnaise content and that was too bad, but she was such a sweetheart I didn’t complain.

    I’ve had some interesting variations. One year my MIL was sympathetic to some international turmoil so made Lebanese potato salad for our holiday gathering. It contained potatoes but also green beans and other stuff that really didn’t work, and no mayonnaise. We ate what we could of it.

    The topper was my non cooking sis bringing her holiday assignment, the potato salad. I’d asked her to pick some up at a deli but she bought canned potato salad; I didn’t even know such stuff existed. It was like this but a store brand. 561C9F23-101F-41AB-BC64-203169993F60.jpeg
    The only semblance to potato salad was that it did contain some little cubes purported to be potatoes, but the only other ingredient was a thin and tasteless white “sauce”.

    It was inedible as proven by our little cur Dena, who sniffed her portion then proceeded to dig a little hole, pushed the stuff in and buried it to remove all traces from our surroundings.

    Not sure if it's the same thing, but Luby's Cafeteria used to have what they called "Sour Slaw"......very "vinegary" and sour.....made my mouth kinda "pucker", but it sure was good!

    The vinegar component of mine is provided along with a chopped dill pickle...… with less garlic, if I'm sharing with my wife. Polish mayonnaise is widely available nowadays: lovely and creamy, not as sweet as other varieties.
