Slim Potato Salad

Bill is a big fan of potato salad, and I like it too. 

If you like potato salad chock full of onions, olives and pickles like we do, you’ll like this.  And it goes with about any meat cooked on the grill!

And, even better,  it's a lighter version:

There’s not much more to say about it except that it tastes good!  Give it a go!

Slim Potato Salad


5 medium red potatoes

1 small red onion, chopped

12 stuffed green olives, sliced

12 sweet petite pickles, sliced

1/3 cup light mayonnaise

1 tablespoon prepared mustard

1 teaspoon celery seed

1 teaspoon seasoned pepper


Wash and peel potatoes and cut into bite-size pieces.

Cook in boiling water until fork tender, drain well.

In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onions, olives and pickels.

Add remaining ingredients and toss until well-coated.

4-6 servings



  1. Sweet pickles are an absolute must in potato salad. Yes, I remember you are a southern girl like me!! I've never done olives. Why not, we like them too. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.


  2. I enjoy potato salad and this sounds leaning toward black reminds me of my childhood. Mom always had green olives with those " little red worms" in them! Funny!

  3. Pam, My better half would love this potato salad! Me...not so much. I could never understand anyone eating cold potatoes... Color me weird I guess. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. Sounds good Pam! The fact that it is light makes it even better. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  5. I'm a big fan of olives, but my sweet hubby is not. But hey....this doesn't mean that I can't make this delicious pot salad for myself!! Think I will do!!

  6. I'm a big fan of potato salads and like to shake them up a bit with different techniques and ingredients. Lighter versions are always welcome in our kitchen.

  7. I'd like to reach in and take a spoonful. Or two.

  8. Sounds very yummy to me. Have a good weekend Diane

  9. I can't believe I haven't made potato salad yet this summer! Yours looks so good. I hasn't been that long since I've been using pickles in potato salad and I love it!

  10. I pinned this one, it's a must try!

  11. Hum, Pam, seems really taste!

How am I supposed to relax in a world where “truffle” can mean either chocolate or fungus?
