Red Skin Potato Salad

What is a summer picnic or barbecue without a potato salad?  It is an American classic.  My daughter's end of the season softball party is tomorrow night, and each family is bringing something to share.  The potato salad I am bringing is easy to make with just a few simple ingredients.  I recommend using organic vegetables if possible.  I tripled the recipe for the large group of softball families.  If you are following the SCD or cannot eat potatoes, try substituting cooked cauliflower.
Wash 3 pounds of small redskin potatoes.

Place potatoes in a stock pot and cover with water.  Add 1/4 tsp salt and bring to a boil.

Boil the potatoes until they are tender and will slide off a knife when pierced,
 about 45 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and break up into pieces in a large bowl.
Add 2 cups chopped celery, 2-3 bunches green onion diced, 1 cup of  homemade or good quality real mayonnaise, 2 tsp. dill, 2 tsp. celery seed, 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 

1 tsp. black pepper and mix well.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.



  1. I've been out blog searching and found yours. I'm a great cook myself, but not trained. I use recipes of ingrediants I know I will like and then old family passdowns. I look forward to your recipes, ideas, tips and tricks.

  2. This is a Boltin family favorite and always a winner when I make it for BBQs!

  3. I would love to
    make this for W's
    end of baseball party.
    Are there three pounds
    of potatoes in a regular
    batch, or was this the
    triple batch that you
    mentioned? Thanks!
