Michelle’s Potato Salad

from Terry Fallis 

Here’s a family recipe from my sister-in-law for potato salad. It’s become a staple summer dish for us for many years now. 


½ cup sugar

1 Tbsp flour

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp salt

2 eggs, slightly beaten

2/3 cup vinegar

2 Tbsp water

6 large potatoes, peeled & diced

1 cup chopped celery

½ cup minced onions

3 hard boiled eggs, diced

Chopped chives


In top of double boiler, mix sugar, flour, mustard and salt. Add beaten eggs, vinegar and 2 tablespoons of water. Bring to boiling while stirring the mixture in the double boiler until thickened.

Combine with the rest ingredients in a large bowl. Garnish with chopped chives.

Nada’s Tips & Tricks: There are so many recipes for potato salad but I know you’ll want to try this one…the mixture poured on the potatoes makes the dish creamy while the rest of the ingredients hold their shape.  I used red onions for colour. Watch the vinegar quantity – start with 1/3 cup and taste before adding more. Serve either hot or cold. Add this to your next barbecue – it’ll be a hit!
