Potato Salad is able to trace its origins to Germany before the turn of the 17th century, where it first became popular to use vinegar and spices on the potato as side to a meal. The salad has a bite to it and is served warm as often as not.

Ingredients[edit]


Southern Ontario Style:

Procedure[edit]

  1. Place potatoes and 2 tablespoons of salt in a large pot of water. Bring the water to a boil, cook for 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife. Drain the potatoes in a colander.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the eggs in water for about 10 minutes until hard-boiled. Drain water and let cold water run over the eggs before peeling the shell. Once shells are peeled, dice the eggs and place in a large bowl.
  3. Sauté some diced onions until light golden brown and add to the bowl with eggs.
  4. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in quarters, or smaller, depending on their size. Place the potatoes in the bowl with the eggs. Add the corn along with some salt, pepper and pasta seasoning to the potato and egg mixture. Set aside.
  5. In a small bowl add the lemon juice while whisking in olive oil slowly. Add to the potatoes, mix all ingredients. Chill for 30 minutes before eating.
