Directions:

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with water by two inches, and then add the sea salt. Cook over high heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the pimentos, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, ground sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  4. Drain the potatoes and rinse them under cold running water for 3 minutes.
  5. Spread the potatoes out on a baking sheet and allow them to cool for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the cooled potatoes, shredded cheddar, and chopped pickles to the mayonnaise mixture and stir to combine.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.

Suggestions:

  • You may need to alter the amount of salt and pepper in this recipe based on your own individual taste. Also, some dill pickles are saltier than others and may affect the final flavor of the potato salad. I myself prefer a little more pepper.
  • Make sure to dry the pimentos on several paper towels to prevent watery potato salad. You can dry the dill pickles on paper towels as well if you wish.
  • I can’t stress enough how important it is to shred your own cheese. The pre-shredded cheese you buy at your local market does not taste as good and has a different texture due to the anti-caking agents that are added to it.

Improvements:

  • Add chopped bacon or hard-boiled eggs to this potato salad.
  • Use a clove or two of finely crushed garlic in this recipe in lieu of garlic powder.
  • You may decide not to peel the potatoes used in this recipe, however, if you do decide to peel them like I did, I suggest you use this OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler. It’s one of my most-loved kitchen gadgets because it is extremely comfortable to use.
  • Invest in a few Enamel Colanders for your kitchen. Not only do they last an extremely long time but they also look gorgeous on display.
