Classic Potato Salad


For me, I like to taste the potatoes in a potato salad. I like it simple, but with full flavor. So, here is a variation of my grandma’s recipe. And honestly I make it at least 3 times a month during the summer. It’s so good.

Classic Potato Salad

12 potatoes, boiled and peeled, diced into cubes

3 green onions, finely chopped

1 cup diced black olives

½ cup thinly sliced celery

1 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

In your large serving bowl, combine lemon juice and oil with potatoes. Refrigerate 1-2 hours. Combine other ingredients and mix carefully. Keep refrigerated. (And sometimes I add 1 cup diced cheddar cheese or shredded. )
