Southern Style Potato Salad

Fourth of July is this week and with a long weekend that will be full of barbecues and family time, I thought this would be a perfect side dish to share. There is nothing like a delicious serving of potato salad that is creamy and full of flavor, and this recipe will get you just that effect. Pair this as a side to your grilled or baked meats and serve it with Southern Mac and Cheese or Southern Style Green Beans as a side.

Glam Kitchen Tips

  • I prefer Hellman’s Mayo, but If you like a more sweet potato salad do, 1/2 cup miracle whip and 1 cup mayonnaise
  • Do not over cook your potatoes or you will have mashed potatoes …and that’s not the dish we are going for (I’ve made this mistake before)
    Dice your vegetables very thin

  • Serves 6-8
