Nana’s Potato Salad


My mom makes really good potato salad. She doesn’t have a recipe…it’s all in her head and she uses the taste as she goes method. I’ve tried to approximate her recipe. My version is really good…not quite Nana’s but maybe with practice and some tips from Nana I’ll get it some day!

This is a small batch version, and I served it with grilled burgers. When my mom makes potato salad, she makes enough for an army. This recipe serves 4 to 6.


  • 1 1/2 lb. potatoes, cooked, peeled, and cubed
  • 1/2 c. celery, chopped
  • 1/4 c. onion, minced
  • 3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 c. mayo
  • Paprika for garnish


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix and taste. Adjust seasoning (may want to add more salt or garlic powder or mayo).
