Just going to add a secret to boiling potatoes without making them watery. An English method. Boil spuds in water with skins on for 10 minutes. Empty out all the water and put back on heat at low setting covered. The moisture in the spuds will steam them. Steam till tender..about 20 minutes or so.
Before making this recipe, I read the comments. So, after making it as noted, I omitted the celery seed because I used celery already. I did add salt, 1/2 cup green peppers, and about 2 tbsp. regular yellow mustard (not ground). It really made a difference and added that "missing" element.
I'm going to add chopped egg to mine along with other crunchy veggies like radishes and green peppers chopped. Also some relish with the yellow mustard. Might as well get as many veggies in as possible.
Sometimes I just have to bypass the comments. If you are going to change the recipe, create your own. It is an insult to the poster of the original recipe when you go on blah, blah, blah about what you did to make the recipe "better".
This potato salad was so good! I added a few chopped green olives, some paprika and crushed red pepper flakes. I also cut up red potatoes and left the skins on to add a bit more nutritious value.
I made this with Tofutti imitation sour cream instead of cottage cheese, left out any milk at all to make it vegan. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and it was awesome! What a relief, its the best recipe I've found for potato salad since I gave up dairy. Thanks.
Made 1/2 of recipe and used 2 Tbsp omega mayo and used yellow mustard in place of powder. Skipped the parsely and celery seed,added chives,and greek yogurt 2 Tbsp to make a bit smoother dressing. My husband and I loved it.
I really liked this. I really dislike fat free mayonnaise and the regular is so high in fat but I love potato salad. This was very yummy. Next time I'll cut up the potatoes before I boil them. It took so long for them to get done whole and were hard to cut up.
CUT UP POTATOES SMALL, SOAK FOR 2 HOURS, DRAIN, REFILL W/WATER & BOIL.REPLACE MILK W/NONDAIRY CREAMER TO REMOVE 1/2 THE POTASSIUM.REPLACE DRY MUSTARD W/2 TBS. YELLOW MUSTARD. ADD IN 1/2 CUP CHOPPED GREEN BELL PEPER. REPLACE WHITE PEPPER W/LAWRY'S SEASONED BLACK PEPPER & USE 1 TSP. SEA SALT.ENJOY.
My friends loved the way I use to make potato salad, but way too much fat in that. I tried this recipe and omitted the vinegar, celery seed, pepper; substituted valdalia onions to green onion, and added turkey bacon to the recipe. It was delicious. My family raved, even with the turkey bacon.
I think your measurements values are way off. I only had 2.5 lbs of potatoes & added 1 cup cucumbers along with the other ingredients & measured out 12 - 1/2 cup servings which upped my calorie count to 112 cal/per servings. Liked the cottage cheese, but was still missing something...will make again
I "expanded" this idea to using the cottage cheese dressing in this recipe for coleslaw.It was good, but like others mentioned, next time I too will use yellow mustard to add to the taste. Great idea, thanks for sharing.
