Easy Potato Salad

This easy potato salad recipe was given to me by a very good friend and retired dairy farmer. She always had to cook for a crowd during harvest time. My church now uses this recipe as a “go to” recipe when we have large gatherings. It makes a huge batch but you can cut it in half for smaller groups or families. You can also use lite salad dressing and it doesn’t seem to harm the taste. I hope you will try it the next time you go to a BBQ or large gathering. I have tossed my own old family recipe in favor of this. It just plain tastes better!

Author Marge


  • 10 lbs cooked, peeled, and diced potatoes
  • 1 Doz. hard boiled eggs diced
  • Dill pickles to taste diced
  • 1 Qt. salad dressing like Miracle Whip
  • Small amount of pickle juice to help with dryness
  • Morton's Natures Seasoning salt add too taste. (Takes the place of salt & pepper)


  1. Mix all together in a large bowl. This will feed approximately 50 people.


Marge taught LooksLikeHomemade founder, Carrie how to cook while standing on a chair in the kitchen and cracking eggs and stirring batter. She also taught her how to shop on a budget, repurpose things into new things, and what little "craftiness" Carrie has, mom is responsible.

Now she's contributing to LooksLikeHomemade, because Carrie taught Mom how to blog. Looks like things are coming full circle!
