It is BBQ season and every neighborhood BBQ needs a good side. One of the best sides of all sides is a delicious potato.

I am a little picky when it comes to my potato salad. Personally, I do not want a lot of crunch. I do not like raw onions or celery in my potato salad. If you love those ingredients feel free to add them to this base potato salad recipe.

The secret is in the eggs. You need to approximately DOUBLE the eggs that most recipes call for.

You start with any type of potato that you like. Just know that you need to adjust the mayo/liquid ratios if you use a potato with more moisture. I use leftover baked potatoes that I let cool in the tinfoil to lock in moisture.

I keep the recipe small so that it is easy to double.

Recipe (serves 4):

2 Large baked or boiled and cubed russet potatoes (approx. 4 Yukon Gold or 5 red potatoes)

6-8 boiled eggs (depends on size) See easy way to get boiled eggs with having to shell: egg loaf

6 dill pickles sliced or chopped 

2 tablespoons of pickle juice from the jar 

2 tablespoons of chopped garlic chives 

2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise 

1 tsp mustard 

2-4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce (to your taste) 

2-4 tsp Franks Red Hot or Louisiana Hot Sauce (to your taste) 

1 tsp celery salt (no worries if you don’t have this exact salt) 

¼ tsp smoked paprika 

Salt and pepper to taste 

Garnish with parsley, dill, celery top leaves and regular paprika 


My recipes are always morphing. I add what I have in my pantry and fridge. In fact, one time I had a lot of extra chicken leftover, so I cubed it and added that to the potato salad and it was great!

I’ve also added bacon and that was amazing! So do what you like. If you like the crunch of a raw onion, then add it in! (And just know that you are wrong on many levels of life and probably smell like BO. hahahah J/K)  I just use recipes as a base, so that I remember key ingredients that I like.  Let me know if you love this one!

Every time I go to Disneyland I go to the Tiki Room and I get some delicious Dole Whip. It is one of my splurges. It is so creamy and light and delicious. I could eat a lot more than I should so I make sure and get the large and then share. Oh my word it is good.

Pineapple Dole Whip has a tangy and sweet flavor that is both refreshing and satisfying.

The tropical taste of pineapple appeals to many people, especially on a warm day or during the summer. Many people associate the treat with happy memories of visiting the Disney parks and enjoying this special treat, which adds to its popularity and nostalgia.

Dole Whip has a creamy and smooth texture that resembles soft-serve ice cream. It's less heavy than traditional dairy-based ice cream, making it amazing and perfect for those who are lactose intolerant or prefer a lighter dessert option. It also makes it a great choice for individuals following a vegan or dairy-free lifestyle.

I have tried to make some myself and I have tried others copy cat versions, they just never compare. They leave me very disappointed because I was so excited to eat a delicious treat and dream of Disneyland, and then it doesn't taste as good.

Here is one that did taste pretty good and it it only 2 ingredients! Dole Whip Hack Pineapple chunks and sweetened condensed coconut milk. That's it!

Now if you don't want to make it yourself, there is a place in St George, Utah that has the Best version I have tasted outside of the Disneyland Park.

Zeppe's is the place! Oh my word. they not only have the pineapple flavor but strawberry as well. Zeppe's Italian Ice is so good. I love the coconut. Sometimes, I get a little chocolate custard on it and it tastes amazing. Oooooh or root beer with vanilla custard or Sunset Splash. Zeppe's has along list of cool treats perfect for summer.

So go get some! Zeppe's Located @ E 700 S, St. George, Utah 84790
