Traditional American Potato Salad 1

Traditional American Salad

Three European countries brought the various versions of the potato salads to the United States of America. The salad, which was prepared according to the British and French recipes, was served cold and at the same time the French recipe was based on the mustard. Whereas the German immigrants served their potato salad hot in the 19-th century. In its turn it was based on the bacon and vinegar. After that the American people extemporized with those recipes and prepared the salads, which were based on the sour cream, mayonnaise, hard-cooked eggs, sweet pickles, celery and other various ingredients.


6 medium russet potatoes
3 white parts of the green onions
230 milliliters mayonnaise
1 tablespoon mustard
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1,5 teaspoon salt
0,25 teaspoon cayenne
0,5 teaspoon sugar
70 gr. celery


Peel the potatoes. Cut them in 4 parts. Dice the celery. Boil hard the eggs. Chop them. Boil the potatoes in the water with the salt till the moment when they become tender. Pour the water out.
