I made this recipe after tiring of paying $2.59 for a one pound container of mediocre potato salad at the local deli! I thought the taste was absolutely great and look forward to making some variations on this theme in the future!
2 medium Russet potatoes, 300 grams nuked for 4 min (.59¢)
¼ tbsp vinegar .02
3 tbsp (31 grams) mayonnaise (.05¢)
2 tsp mustard (.02¢)
3 tbsp onion (23 grams), minced (.04¢)
3 tbsp celery (23 grams), chopped (.10¢)
3 tbsp relish (30 grams) (.05¢)
1 hard boiled egg, chopped (.20¢)
salt and pepper to taste N/A
To make hard boiled eggs
1) Place egg(s) in cold water
2) Heat to just boiling
3) Remove from heat and cover
4) Wait 12 minutes, drain an cool then peel
I nuked the potatoes in the microwave for about 4 minutes and then refrigerated them. Once they had cooled off, I peeled them by hand and then cut them into chunks. I then added all the other ingredients mixed them together with a fork. Makes about one pound of potato salad. Note that all the amounts are estimates – you might need to experiment to find the best mix for your particular tastes. Total cost ~$1.07!
