Deli Potato Salad

I grew up eating Classic Deli Potato Salad.  There are tons of recipes for potato salad, but this recipe for Deli Potato Salad is a very basic potato salad.  There are no predominant flavors, just a simple mayonnaise based potato salad.

Obviously, this is a recipe that can be altered to taste.  Sometimes I add a bit of chopped carrot and green pepper which offers great color and flavor.


  • 4 Eastern Potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 4 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Boil potatoes and eggs in medium saucepan until potatoes are fork tender.
  • Meanwhile mix mayonnaise, celery, onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in bowl.
  • When potatoes are cool, peel and cut into bite-sized pieces and add to mayonnaise mixture.
  • Peel eggs and slice into potatoes.
  • Mix all and taste for seasoning.  Alter to taste.
