I have always ONLY used Hellmann's to make my potato salad and now I am even more pleased that this is the brand I have chosen. By 2020 Hellemann's has commented to have only 100% cage free eggs in ALL of its products! That is an amazing commitment!
After all these years of raising children and noticing the differences in the behavior and the health of my family when served "fake" foods I have made some commitments of my own to eat REAL food as much as we can. Real, fresh, healthy, organic, homemade food.
I hope you will check out this YouTube video featuring Chef Tim Love and some of his friends from behind the scenes at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen Colorado this year. Then after you watch the video and realize what a great time that would be go to Hellman's Facebook page and enter to win a chance to go to the Food & Wine Classic next year in the Hellmann's Real Matters Sweepstakes!
My recipe for potato salad is to cook about 6 red or new potatoes which you need to cut up with the skins on (if they are red) and boil in a pot of water that cover the potatoes for about 10 min or until they are tender. (You can stick a fork in them as the old saying goes and then they are done.) Drain the potatoes and then cool with cold water and drain again.
Save a 1/4 cup of the water the potatoes cooked in to add later.
Then in a large mixing bowl or salad bowl add potatoes and about 1 cup of Hellmann's, 1/4 cup diced or chopped onions, a tsp or two of your favorite mustard, two tsp of white vinegar, tbsp of fresh chives, 1/4 cup of sliced olives, and salt and pepper to taste. If your mix is too dry add some of your potato water to thicken and make it nice an moist.
Optional ingredients you can throw in are:
chopped bacon, onions, boiled eggs, celery or relish.
Your family will love it as much as mine and is very frugal to serve only about $.29 per serving! I will only make it with Hellmann's though and I have been making it for about 20 years now.
