My Grandma's Anise Potato Salad
This is the basic recipe my gram used to use to make her potato salad. It sounds odd, but the anise is really good in this dish.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 6medium baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1cup chopped celery
- 1bunch green onions, chopped
- 1cup mayonnaise, or to taste
- ½teaspoon anise seed
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4hard-cooked eggs sliced, for garnish
- 1dash ground paprika
Step 1Place potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and run under cold water to cool. Drain well.
Step 2In a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, celery, onion, mayonnaise, and anise seed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until cold. Garnish with sliced hard-cooked eggs, and dust with paprika, if desired.
