Spicy Old-fashioned Potato Salad

Prep Time:

20 mins.

Cook Time:

20 mins.


5 cups

No barbecue, potluck or picnic is complete without an old-school Southern potato salad. Blue Plate Hot & Spicy Mayonnaise makes this one extra creamy and delicious, with a spicy kick in every bite.


  • 2 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt, divided
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup Blue Plate® Hot & Spicy Mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 3 boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons scallions, chopped


  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot of cold water. Add 1 tablespoon salt, the bay leaf and the thyme and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, egg, dill, mustard, celery, scallions and red onion in a large bowl and mix well. Season with remaining salt.
  3. When the potatoes are completely cool, gently fold them into mayonnaise mixture until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
