Mom’s Recipe Hall of Fame v.5: Top Secret Potato Salad
This is mom’s closely-guarded personal recipe, disclosing it here is a major security breach!
1 medium red onion finely chopped
Enough apple cider vinegar to cover onions
4 hard boiled eggs chopped
2 large russet potatoes diced and boiled until tender
1/4 cup butter melted
1 tsp pink salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup green or red pepper diced
1/4 cup celery chopped
1/4 cup black olives sliced
1 small tomato seeded and chopped
About 1 cup mayonnaise (make your own it’s cheap and easy, far superior to the hazardous glop at the grocery.
use decent oil like olive or grapeseed, no toxic canola, soybean, corn or other sketchy stuff allowed!)
Place chopped onion in a bowl and cover with cider
vinegar. Let it soak for at least an hour, preferably overnight. Place cooked potato in large bowl, pour in the melted butter, salt and pepper and toss well.
Drain onion and add to potatoes along with green pepper, celery, olives, tomato and eggs. Add enough mayo to attain proper consistency. Stir and refrigerate.
Friends don’t let friends eat grocery store potato salad. Consider this recipe an intervention for those who seek to defile the temple of the soul with dubious corporate pseudo-foods. We know who you are! 8)
