The first time I had Stonemill Kitchens’ homestyle potato salad was at my friend’s baby shower. We’ve known each for almost two decades and her parents are like family. Dinner that night featured some of her mom’s delicious cooking as well as samosas brought by a friend and this seriously delicious potato salad. Stephen and I were on our third helping when I ran into my friend’s dad and I had to ask where it was from. He winked and told me it was an old family recipe. Chatting with my friend later, I asked for her recipe because this salad was all I could think about. She laughed and told me it was from Costco.
Since then, Stephen and I pick up a container (ok it’s really like a bucket) every time we have a family dinner. Thanksgiving? Potato salad. Christmas? Potato salad. Cottage weekend? Potato salad. With this year’s quarantine and COVID19 situation though, we haven’t had many large gatherings or been to Costco since March. This just meant Stephen needed to replicate the recipe at home in a (much) smaller batch for just the 3 of us. Luckily, we’ve kept some containers in the house so we could read the list of ingredients as a starting point. This recipe isn’t a perfect dupe, but it’s close enough to satisfy our cravings while we keep tweaking the spices!
Note: We forgot to include mustard (a key ingredient!) in the photos.
