This easy classic potato salad recipe is just like the recipe that my mom used to make when I was a kid. It’s perfectly delicious in every way.

Classic Potato Salad Recipe

The last potato salad that I had at a friend’s cookout was made without hard-boiled eggs.

I’ve found that I just really love the flavor and texture that the eggs add to the recipe.

It’s just the way my family likes potato salad.

I’m also in love with the flavor of this classic potato salad. It’s just so creamy and delicious.

The one ingredient that my mom’s potato salad recipe did not include are the celery seeds. I’ve found that I absolutely love the extra flavor that celery seeds add to the recipe and I never leave them out.

It’s officially spring here in Ohio but it’s been far too cold to consider having a cookout.

You can bet that the first warm day we get I’ll be firing up the grill, making some burgers and whipping up a big batch of this classic potato salad for my family to enjoy.

I’m really in my happy place during the summer on those lazy Saturdays when I can relax in the backyard with my friends and family.
