Potato Salad

75
  • Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds medium red-skinned potatoes
  • 1 medium white onion, finely grated
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup Hellmanns Mayonnaise
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)
  • Hard-boiled eggs sliced, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until soft when pierced with the tip of a knife, about 30 minutes. Drain, and allow to cool slightly. Peel potatoes, and slice into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

  2. Combine potatoes, onion, water, vinegar, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Toss gently between two large bowls, trying not to break up potato slices. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add mayonnaise; mix gently between two large bowls until well combined and creamy. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours; the mixture will thicken as it stands. Garnish with parsley and/or sliced hard-boiled eggs, if desired.

    This is such a wonderful recipe. The only things I do differently are to add some finely chopped celery, a little celery seed, and some black pepper. So delicious and refreshing!

    I love, love, love this recipe. Have made it so many times and everyone enjoys it. It's just like the German deli's recipe I remember growing up in Brooklyn. Brings back great memories. Thank you Martha.

    I've been making this potato salad for years. It was originally called Kasi Krukar Potato Salad. I spent my early years on Long Island and this recipe is as close as I've come to NY Deli potato salad. Awesome!

    This potato salad is very good and creamy. Yum! Don't vary from the recipe. They must be the red potatoes.
