Susan’s Potato Salad

Well another week has begun and it is rainy and chilly and dreary here in south Florida. But thinking of sunnier days and barbecues makes me think of my favorite salad. Potato salad. This recipe is from my sister’s mother-in-law, Susan Olson-Ledogar. This is one of the best potato salad recipes I’ve ever had. It’s pretty close to New York deli potato salad. I think my sister had gotten this recipe at her bridal shower many moons ago. Everyone attending was to bring a favorite recipe and this was Susan’s. It’s simple and just plain delicious! It makes a lot but then again that’s ok!


5 lbs potatoes

1 cup milk

1 cup mayonnaise

1 onion, minced

3 teaspoons sugar

3 teaspoons salt

4 tablespoons white vinegar


1. Boil potatoes with skins on till fork tender. Drain. When cool enough to handle peel and slice.

2. Mix other ingredients together in a bowl and pour over potatoes. Mix gently until potatoes are covered. Chill.
