Mustard Potato Salad

Potato salad is a classic salad that so many of us have on our menus in the summer and year round for picnics, bar-b-ques, and covered dish events.  There are some meals that just call for that bowl of Grandma's Potato Salad.  We grow potatoes in our garden and when we have the fresh potatoes from the garden to use in this salad it is heavenly, with a very special earthy flavor that the fresh potatoes have, this is a great Garden to Table recipe.

  1. Everyone has their own recipe for a perfect potato salad, but not everyone has the luxury of having a potato garden in their backyard! How I wish I can grow potatoes on my own! The salad looks very delicious, will try out your variation some day :)

  2. It was one of my Mom's favorite salad, although I don't think she used to ad mustard.
    It looks GREAT and I'd like to try your recipe :)

  3. My mother makes hers very much like yours, this looks sooooo good! I want to try growing my own potatoes, that is great!

  4. Love the inclusion of the mustard and hard boiled eggs in your potato salad, and how lucky that you can dig them straight out of the garden. You're absolutely right - there is no comparison in taste between a freshly dug spud and one that has been hanging around in your greengrocer's cool store for a while.

  5. This looks awesome. It's going into my 'recipes to try' folder, and to the top of the list for my Monday cookout. I have it all but the onions and mustard.

  6. Yum!!! Love seeing food go from the garden to the table!! :) Thanks for sharing. It looks so yummy!!

  7. Miz Helen, there's just nothing better than good ol' homemade potato salad! Perfect for labor day- I believe I'll have a bowl full! Visiting from Sweet tea Social! :)

  11. Mmm your potato salad looks wonderful! Potato salad is one of my weaknesses, I could definitely eat it as a main dish, and not just a side!!!! This looks delicious, the mustard flavor sounds great in it!

  12. THIS potato salad is making my tummy rumble tonight. Wishing I could reach into my computer and grab a bowl! Thank you for sharing with Simple Supper Tuesday. I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend, Miz Helen!

  13. I always enjoy potato salads with hard boiled eggs! I love the dressing on your Mustard Potato Salad too, Miz Helen. There's nothing like potatoes fresh from the garden!
