This Quick & Easy No Cook Potato Salad Recipe is my favorite quick and easy salad to make during the spring and summer. Time for cooking is always an issue during the warmer months of the year. We always seem to be on the go doing something. I am always looking for ideas on how to make our meals much quicker. We tend to grill hot dogs, chicken, burgers and Metts on the grill. We also use our new smoker we purchased last year quite a bit. We like to eat salads and fresh fruit as a side with our summer meals.
Quick & Easy No Cook Potato Salad Recipe
Being in the kitchen cooking during the summer is just too much. I always get over heated. Cooking becomes a chore when we are wanting to be out enjoying the arm weather.
For years when we were pressed for time we would pick up store bought potato salad to have as a side with our grilling meals. Problem was that we always had to add in some extra items to make it taste the way we liked it. The hubby came up with a great idea and decided to give canned potatoes a test run in a potato salad. We whipped up a batch of yummy potato salad with canned potatoes and IT WORKED. The potato salad came out perfect and required no boiling of potatoes, peeling potatoes or dicing. I was so excited as we could now make potato salad at home quickly with no cooking at all. I grab my pre-bolied eggs in a package in the deli area at Kroger or also you can usually purchase them from the salad bar for cheaper. Toss in your favorite veggies (I like to buy vegetables pre-diced from the salad bar too) and mayo or miracle whip and have a semi homemade potato salad in just minutes.
2 15 oz cans Whole Potatoes
1/2 cup Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Sweet Pickle Relish
2 tbsp Mustard
1/2 cup diced Celery
1/4 cup diced Red Onion
1/4 cup diced Green Pepper
3 diced Hard Boiled Eggs
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Cube potatoes and add to large bowl.
Add all remaining ingredients (except paprika) and stir to mix well.
Garnish with paprika.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
