Ready in 45 minutes

This recipe has been in the family for many years but no one really knows who started it. I only know its a twist on the regular traditional potato salad your use to but WOW its really good.


10 lb Potatoes; chopped into medium chunks
1 cup Celery; finely chopped
12 Eggs; hard boiled & chopped
1 cup Fresh parsley; finely chopped
2 cup Dill relish
2 pt Mayonnaise; or Mayo Salad Dressing
1 cup Sweet relish
1/2 cup Creole mustard
2 cup Salad olives; chopped
Salt and pepper; to taste
2 cup Onions; finely chopped
3 tbsp Louisiana hot sauce
1 pound Crawfish meat; coarsely chopped
1 pound Shrimp; coarsely chopped
4 large cloves Garlic; finely chopped
1/4 cup Basil; finely chopped

Original recipe makes 20



1. Boil potatoes in their jackets.

2. Let cool, then peel them and chop into medium chunks then cool completely.

3. Mix mayonnaise, yellow mustard, Louisiana hot sauce, and salt together.

4. Add potatoes, along with the rest of the ingredients, and fold in well.

5. You can make this the day before and refrigerate it overnight which is the best way.

6. You may need to put a little more Mayonnaise to it the next day if it is a little dry.

7. Dust the top of the potato salad with paprika before serving to table.
