Grandma Howitt's Potato Salad

The only kind worth eating!
Cook Time 40 mins
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Servings 10 servings


  • 6 RED potatoes skins on
  • 6 eggs hard boiled
  • 1/3 white onion
  • 1 cup miracle whip
  • 3 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/3 tsp celery salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Scrub potatoes, cut into quarters and boil in salted water until soft (about 20 min)
  • Boil eggs until hard (I start my eggs in cold water and start the timer for 20 min once it starts to boil)
  • Once potatoes and eggs are done, allow them to cool, then remove skins from potatoes and shells from eggs
  • Run potatoes, eggs and onion over a grater for a shredded potato salad (or chop very tiny if that is your preference)
  • Gently stir miracle whip, mustard, celery salt, salt and pepper into potato/egg/onion mixture
  • Adjust seasonings to taste (I generally add a touch more salt) and allow to cool several hours before serving


If you can make this about 24-hours ahead of time the flavors will really come together and create an extra delicious side dish that pairs well with all grilled meats!
