Hellmann’s Olive Oil Mayonnaise Original Potato Salad

I can’t help but love potato salad. It’s simple. It’s summery. It’s fresh and zesty and you can do a million things to it, and it’s pretty much going to be good no matter what.

But…I never make it.

Don’t ask me why, I just don’t. I’m a fickle creature. There is no understanding my madness.


However, I was recently approached by Hellmann’s to give their new Hellmann’s® mayonnaise dressing with Olive Oil a shot in a Potato Salad recipe. Therefore…I HAD to make potato salad.

So I did. I do what I am told sometimes.

Not often.

Hellmann’s The Original Potato Salad

  • 2 lbs. potatoes (5 to 6 medium), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 1 cup Hellmann’s® Olive Oil Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped (optional)
  1. Cover potatoes with water in 4-quart saucepot; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and cool slightly.
  2. Combine Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, sugar and pepper in large bowl. Add potatoes, celery, onion and eggs and toss gently. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Thoughts? Good stuff. I like the new Hellmann’s. Great flavor I am used to, but a little healthier than the original. And who doesn’t love olive oil in general? The potato salad was creamy, full of flavor, and is one of those recipes that will please a crowd. You know, not too much, not too little in the tastebud department. A very good go-to recipe! I added a little bit of chopped sage, as I like that. And a bit of fresh parsley. Personally, I do not like to put eggs in my salads. Ever. I don’t dig hardboiled eggs.

Okay, that’s a lie. I’ll eat the hardboiled whites. You’ll NEVER see me eat the yellow though. In fact, I only eat eggs scrambled, or in cakes, or brownies. Someone mentioned Eggs Benedict to me the other day, and I thought – I’m supposed to love these, as I’m told they are a treat. But runny yellow eggs freak me the fork OUT.

Luckily, this mayonnaise doesn’t.

Try it, see what YOU think. And, lucky for you, here’s the link to Hellmann’s, where you can grab a coupon that will save you some cash on their new mayo.

Thank me later.
