Prize Winning Potato Salad

I made this potato salad yesterday and thought I'd share it with you today. This is my favorite potato salad. I found the recipe many years ago in a magazine. It didn't win the top prize in their contest, but was right up there near the top. Personally, I think it should have won.

Prize Winning Potato Salad
(Serves 8-10)

½ cup sugar
1 T. cornstarch
1 t. dry mustard
½ t. salt (I omit salt in all recipes.)
¾ cup water
¼ cup vinegar
2 eggs – slightly beaten
1 cup mayonnaise

In heavy saucepan combine first 7 ingredients; cook, stirring until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat, cover with plastic wrap and cool in refrigerator. (I do this part the day before.) Stir mayonnaise into cooled mixture.

6 cups potatoes, cooked in jackets, cooled, peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes
5 hard cooked eggs
¼ cup shredded onion
¼ cup parsley, chopped
1 ½ t. salt (I omit)
½ t. pepper

Mix all ingredients and toss gently. Add dressing and stir until well mixed. Garnish with some egg and paprika.

I didn't bother garnishing it with some of the egg. I just mixed all the hard cooked eggs into the salad. Please don't judge the recipe on my lousy picture. Try it instead. It's really, really good.


  1. Betty, I love potato salad and this recipe looks delicious!
    Thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. This looks delicious Betty! Hopefully this summer will give us some more cooler and less humid days so I can have a bar-be-que and eat outside. I love potato salad served along with hamburgers and hot dogs.

  3. Oh yummers that recipe reads soooooo good (and your picture is nice too :-) )!

  4. I love potato salad and like to try new recipes. This one looks yummy!

  5. This sounds yummy! I never add salt to anything; Robert has HBP. I always add chopped pickles to my salads too. Mmmm....
