Shout Hallelujah Potato Salad. Now that’s a name for a dish that you definitely need to try if you haven’t already. Regular potato salad is great, we’re not brushing it off, but shout hallelujah potato salad?? It’s amazing. Looking at the ingredient list might seem a little daunting, but don’t even worry about it. Once you’ve got all your ingredients on hand, you just throw everything together and you’re good to go!
What are some these ingredients that make the list so long, you ask? Well they all play a hand in making the finished result what it is, so there’s that. We’ve got celery, red onion, green bell pepper, pimientos and sweet pickles in there, along with hard-boiled eggs (added flavor and texture), then we’ve got mustard, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and all sorts of seasonings to round out the whole dish. While you could skip any ingredients you don’t like, we really love how everything blends together, and find that, once it has a little time for the flavors to build, it’s a powerhouse dish that people can’t seem to get enough of.
