Potato salad is one of my all time favorite side dishes. I've had many different versions and I haven't had any that can top my MaMaw's, it was awesome! While I LOVE my MaMaw's recipe and make it often, there is another potato salad that ranks very close to my MaMaw's and that is the potato salad from Whole Hog Cafe.
Every time I go to Whole Hog I always get double potato salad for my sides; I love it...I honestly think I'm addicted! It's a good addiction though; it's an addiction that has encouraged me to try to duplicate their recipe. I have to say that my interpretation came extremely close to the original, and I had multiple people confirm that it was pretty close. Spencer and I had some people over to watch football and I made this as a side to go along with ribs and a few other things. One of the girls that was there is a die hard fan of Whole Hog potato salad and she absolutely LOVED it! It was a hit with everyone, and people couldn't wait to get the recipe! I love this potato salad; it's not too much of any flavor and when all the ingredients are combined it's the absolute perfect flavor combinations.
I hope you enjoy this as much as my friends and I do!
