Creamy Potato Salad Red Potatoes for a Creamy Potato Salad Herbs for our Creamy Potato Salad Creamy Potato Salad ingredients Creamy Potato Salad mixture Creamy Potato Salad recipe Today we have a bit of a summer staple recipe for you, our Creamy Potato Salad. We added some hard boiled eggs for protein and to make this super filling. This would be ideal for one of those meals when you only have enough time to make one side. This is such a simple side dish that won’t take too much time to make, but will yield a really delicious result. This recipe has just the perfect proportion of mayo to potato, so things don’t get too mayo-y if you know what I am saying. That just ruins potato salads. This recipe is really just a good staple to keep around and make whenever you need that bonus filling side dish. We used Farmers Garden by Vlasic Pickle chips diced up to give this salad some crunch, as well as some chives and shallots for a little edge. Guys, this is really the perfect potato salad for summer. Enjoy!

    This potato salad looks so incredibly delicious! And those pickles… I have to get my hands on some. It’s almost spring here in South Africa so this is perfect, although potato salad is good all the time :)

    Mmm potato salad. Thanks for putting pickles in here because I was trying to convince my husband that potato salad should have pickles and he didn’t believe me. Our salad was kind of boring. This one looks much better!
