Whether you’re invited to a company picnic, office potluck or neighborhood backyard BBQ you are always encouraged to bring a dish to share and this crowd-pleaser No Peel Red Potato Salad is a just a dish everyone wants me to make. Simple and quick to make, this salad will not break your bank but will leave everyone taking about it and asking for the recipe.
3 lbs. Red Potatoes
1 medium-size Onion, chopped
¾ cup red Pepper, chopped
¾ cup Celery, chopped
3 hard-boiled Eggs, chopped
½ cup finely chopped Dill Pickles
¾ cup Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Cider Vinegar
2 tablespoons dill pickle Juice
1 teaspoon Caraway seeds (optional)
A dash of Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper
Cover unpeeled red potatoes with salted cold water and caraway seeds in a large pot and bring to a boil. Caraway seeds are optional; however, they add a hint of great aroma that complements the potatoes. Caraway seeds are used mostly in rye bread but back home, in Bosnia, we add this spice to sauerkraut, sprinkled over home-made cheese scones, casseroles and occasionally we add it to desserts.
Cook the potatoes about 40 minutes or until they are easily pierced with a fork or skewer.
Meanwhile, combine onions, pepper, celery, eggs and dill pickles in a serving bowl.
Drain potatoes, cool just until able to handle and cut into half-inch pieces. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with pickle juice and cider vinegar. Toss salad gently with mayonnaise. Season the salad with salt and freshly ground pepper. Chill before serving.
