Red Skin Potato Salad

This quickly became my all time favorite potato salad recipe. Its got a little zing, so it stands out nicely from all of the others at a picnic table. Like all great favorites, it came from family. I do so love relaxing after a great meal with family and looking across the licked clean dishes and asking "So, can I have the recipe?" Lucky for me (and now you!), Aunt Joann always says yes.

We had a work picnic Friday night, and at 6pm Thursday night I realized I hadn't signed up to bring a food yet! Me, the food blogger!! Next time I'll probably make cupcakes... this group hasn't had my famous red velvet cupcakes yet! Sadly I was so rushed getting this one thrown together that I didn't get a pic snapped at any point. Oops. I love this one though, so I know I'll be making it again soon now that the weather is finally warming up. HOORAY! 

There was lots of potato salad to choose from Friday, but this was my favorite. Of course, I'm a little biased. ;) 

Red-Skinned Potato Salad 

from Aunt Joann


2 lb red skin potatoes
10-12 radishes
1/2 bunch green onions
1 tbsp yellow mustard
mayonnaise to taste
1/4 cup fresh dill (or to taste)


Boil the potatoes in salted water for 30-45 minutes or until soft. (Some sources say as little as 15 minutes, so consider the size of your potatoes.) If you have less time than that, consider cutting them down first.

Once potato salad soft, shock with cold water to cool enough to handle easily and comfortably. Cut into bite size pieces.

Meanwhile, slice the radishes into thin slivers and chop the green onions (thinner near the white part, thicker as you get to green) and dill.

Once the potatoes are cool enough to not do gross things to the mayo, combine potatoes, radishes, green onions, and dill. Mix in mustard and mayo. For the mayo, start with 1/4 cup and work up until it looks right. We probably settle near 1/2 cup each batch in this house, but this is highly variable by taste. :)

Your turn! 
What's your go-to picnic or bbq side dish?
