One more of my mom, Cherri’s, classic party recipes is finally here with Cherri’s Potato Salad Recipe. There are many ways to make potato salad, and as much as I like most potato salads, this one feels like ‘home’ to me.
One thing you will find with all of my mother’s cooking: she didn’t like sweet salads. Almost all of her salads, like Macaroni Salad, Cole Slaw, and this potato salad, all are not sweet. Vinegar and sugar are balanced out to create a tangy yumminess that makes you want more.
I think this recipe may have been passed down from my Dad’s mother, but I’m not sure. All I know is this became one of our family sunday dinner staples whenever we had hamburgers, hot dogs, tri-tip, or almost anything grilled.
The hardest part of this recipe is giving the potatoes time to cool. I found that laying them out on paper towels allows them to cool faster and prevents the potatoes from continuing to cook.
