A simple potato salad that features potatoes and hardboiled eggs. I also used parsley and chives from my garden. The dressing can be made with all mayo, or like I did, with Greek yogurt. I like this potato salad. Its one of my favorites.


Potatoes 1 1/2 Pound
Eggs 3 , hardboiled
Mayonnaise 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Yogurt 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Greek Yogurt)
Dijon mustard 1 Tablespoon
White vinegar 1 Tablespoon
Maple syrup 1 Tablespoon
Salt 3/4 Teaspoon
Paprika 1 Dash
Onion powder 1 Dash (to taste)
Garlic powder 1 Dash (to taste)
Parsley 1/2 Tablespoon (fresh, chopped)
Chives 1 Tablespoon (chopped)


Getting Ready:

1. Heat water in a pot until boiling, place potatoes in a steamer and steam potatoes, until soft. Cool.

2. If you do not already have hard boiled eggs, you can use the following instructions to do so:




-1 T white vinegar


-Bring water to a boil, covered

-Add vinegar

-Carefully add eggs

-Cook 15 minutes

-Remove from heat and run under cold water to cool and stop the cooking process

-Cool completely

3. When done cooking, cool potatoes and eggs (separately) under cold water.


1. Combine dressing ingredients as the potatoes and eggs cool.

2. Peel and dice the potatoes and eggs and add enough dressing (add a bit more if the salad won't be served right away).

3. Combine with dressing, gently stirring to blend ingredients


1. Serve immediately at room temperature or chill and serve within a day or two.

2. This salad is especially good served with homemade hamburgers, on homemade buns, with chips and homemade salsa on the side.
