Easy Simple Classic Potato Salad

  • Author: Debi


A classic easy potato salad using nothing but potatoes, celery, onion in a mayo and sour cream dressing.


  • 45 lbs.  Red Potatoes, peeled and cut half (approx. 10-12)
  • 1 Cup Sweet Onion, diced
  • 1 Cup Celery, diced (2 or 3 stalks)
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

DRESSING: (you may or may not use it all)

  • 1 1/2 cups Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp White Pepper


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut in large chunks depending on the size of the potato.
  2. Place them in a large pot of cold water covered by at least 2 inches.
  3. Heavily salt the water and bring to a boil.  Once the water is boiling, turn the stove down to medium and simmer the potatoes for about 15 minutes or until a fork easily goes through.
  4. Meanwhile, dice the onion and celery and set aside.
  5. Drain the potatoes and let them cool about 5 minutes or until they stop steaming.
  6. Putting your finger over the top of the bottle, pour about 2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar all over the potatoes.  Stir to combine.  Allow to absorb for a minute or two.
  7. Mash very lightly with a potato masher keeping some larger chunks.  Add the onions and celery and sprinkle with some salt and pepper.
  8. Make the dressing in a small bowl and add enough until the potatoes are fully coated.
  9. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
