Don’t Miss This: The Perfect Summer Potato Salad!

Potato Salad is a favorite in my house and family.  And with grilling season at hand, it’s the perfect time for it!

Potato Salad: The Perfect Summer Recipe

We’ve come to many friendly family debates as to which type of potato salad is the best.  My sister (and her German heritage) swears that German Potato Salad is best.  Don’t get me wrong, I do love it but I’m not sure that it’s my favorite.

My husband creates his own, which is amazing.  I would like to tell you about it, or share with you, but he refuses to share or measure out his recipes.  It’s a point of contention.

I like a few different Potato Salad recipes, and I’m sharing with you my favorite, which is a combination of a few different recipes with my own spin.  As for my family, they can share on their own websites.  Bahaha.

If you are looking for another recipe that is perfect for fresh summer veggies, check out this Light Summer Corn Salad and this awesome Mock Sonic Strawberry Limeade!

Regardless how you like yours, I think we can all agree on at least two things:

  1. Potato Salad is the perfect summer accompaniment to just about anything.
  2. Potato salad is always better on the second day when the flavors have set into each and every bite!

Of course, sharing this recipe makes me want to make it again.  I just fixed it last week but….

Perfect Summer Potato SaladPerfect Summer Potato Salad


  • 2 1/2 lbs New Potatoes (the small ones with multiple colors)
  • 6 Slices Cooked Bacon, crumbled
  • 6 Eggs, hard boiled
  • 1/2 c chopped red onion
  • 1/3 c  chopped celery
  • 3 Tbsp Zucchini Relish (regular relish or tomato relish can be substituted)
  • 1 c mayo
  • 1/4 c mustard
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley


  1. Boil potatoes until soft, rinse with cold water and let cool, then quarter them and place in large bowl.
  2. Crumble hard boiled eggs (or chop them) and add to potatoes along with bacon, onion, celery, and relish.
  3.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine mayo, mustard and parsley.  Mix.
  5. Add sauce to potato mixture, stir well.
  6. Adjust sauce to taste and add whatever you feel is missing or adjust if you feel one flavor is dominating too much.  😀  I pour in juice from the zucchini relish for extra moisture!

Just a Reminder: be sure and keep your potato salad cool, you can put the bowl in a bowl of ice to help make sure it doesn’t get warmed up!

I’d love to hear your additions/changes and what kind of potato salad is your favorite?


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!

    Wow, I’ve never seen zucchini relish, I’ll have to look for it! And pouring the juice for the extra flavor sounds great. I don’t really have a fav potato salad recipe yet (though when I try it, yours may go to #1). I’m curious about the mustard you use – is it the yellow, or the “spicy” kind? I generally use plain yellow French’s mustard. Thanks!

    • Hey Sandy, I use the regular yellow. Hope you enjoy it!
