There’s nothing more American on our most cherished holidays than throwing some burgers on the bbq with friends and family. We love to cook out during the Memorial Day heat and with our bbq’ing we love our side dishes. Today I present you with some of the Ultimate Potato Salad Recipes from the web.

The first recipe comes to us from Bruce Ownes at TMRZoo, his Ultimate Potato Salad features:

  • 5 large potatoes peeled, chopped (pieces the size of your thumb) and cooked
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 3 stalks of chopped celery
  • 1 tbls of fresh dill

  • 1 tsp of mustard
  • 1 chopped dill picked spear
  • ¼ cup of chopped scallions
  • 1/3 cup of mayonnaise
  • Boiled eggs and paprika for garnish.

For a Quick and simple southern recipe one of my all time favorites (for ease of cooking) is found at AllRecipes and includes:

  • 4 potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sweet relish
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

If you want to go “American Classic” in celebration of the American holiday you can also try this About.com recipe:

  • 6 medium russet potatoes, peeled, quartered
  • 3 green onions, white parts only, minced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 eggs, hard-boiled, chopped

Whatever recipe you decide to use on Memorial Day I’m sure you’ll be pleased with the results, in their own way, despite their titles they are all Ultimate Potato Salad Recipes simply for the fact that they offer a wide range of tastes for different types of foodies. Just remember to give yourself some time to prepare and cook each recipe, even a quick recipe will take a bit of time to prepare the ingredients, cut up the potatoes and cook.
