Old Fashioned Potato Salad - gluten free

This potato salad recipe has been enjoyed by our family for about 50 years.  It seems to have just the right "twang" and also makes a fabulous macaroni salad by substituting pasta (gluten free if needed) in for the potatoes.

Creamy, homemade dressing is a "win-win" with this potato salad.

If you need a gluten free dressing check the labels carefully!   Kraft Miracle Whip is suppose to be gluten free, I used this product in my salad.

Maybe try making your own using this recipe, Basic Mayonnaise Recipe.

Lots of flavor in all these ingredients, and chopped up finely so there's a little bit of everything in every forkful.

 Old Fashioned Potato Salad                       Serves 6
4 cups cooked, cooled and cubed potatoes.
6 boiled eggs, chopped.
1/2 cup chopped green onions.
1/2 cup chopped sweet pickles.
1/4 cup sliced olives, optional.
1/4 cup cooked, crumbled bacon - optional.
1 cup Kraft Miracle Whip or any store brand dressing. (check label for gluten free)
1 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tsp sweet pickle juice, right from the pickle jar.

In a medium bowl gently conbine cubed potatoes,  chopped eggs, chopped green onions, pickles and optional olives.

In a small mixing bowl combine miracle whip, mustard, celery seed, salt, pepper, and sweet pickle juice. Mix well. Pour over potato and egg mixture and gently combine. Sprinkle  optional crumbled bacon over top,  cover and chill until ready to serve.

Eat left-overs up within 3-4 days. And don't leave salad out at room temperature over 2 hours.



  1. Looks so yummy. I love potato salad and yours looks like a winner to me. A favourite addition to my potato salad is diced apple.
