Suburban Potato Salad – Recipe

potato-salad-1There are many different recipes for potato salad, but one of my favorite ones is the Suburban Potato Salad.   I love the added color and texture created by the fruit and vegetables.

It makes a very nice addition to other party foods or as a side dish for lunch, dinner, picnic, or barbecue.

This recipe makes about 6 cups of salad.

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs. onions, chopped
  • 1 cup green peas, cooked (al dente)
  • 1 cup carrots (cubed ¼ inch), cooked (al dente),
  • 5 hard boiled eggs, chopped

  • 2 Tbs. minced Claussen Pickles
  • 1 Tbs. chopped dill (optional)

  • 1 cup Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise
  • ½ cup Light Sour Cream (or Oikos Greek Organic Plain Fat Free Yogurt)
  • 2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 2Tbs. Claussen Pickle brine


  1. Wash the potatoes, leave skin on, cover with cold salted water, bring to boil and cook until semi-cooked (use a toothpick to test for firmness).
  2. Remove potatoes, drain, and cool off with cold water.
  3. Peel the potatoes, by scraping the skin off and removing all the eyes.
  4. Cut into small (1/2 inch) cubes, or smaller if you like.
  5. Add onions, green peas, carrots, eggs, pickles, apple, dill, salt and pepper.
  6. Fold in gently.
  7. Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard and pickle brine.
  8. Pour over potato salad and fold in gently (do not over mix, as not to break down the vegetables).


Make sure not to over cook the potatoes, carrots and peas, so that the salad does not become mushy, during mixing time.
