Crazy Good Curried Double Potato Salad Recipe: This Isn't Your Typical Potato Salad Recipe

I had a curried potato salad at a meeting once and figured it was worth a try to duplicate it. I also figured that a little sweetness would be good with the curry, so I tried combining white potatoes with sweet potatoes. Yum!

This easy curry potato salad recipe is good warm or cold. Try it for your next covered dish picnic!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes (includes time before and after cooking potatoes)
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Servings: 12


  • 1 1/2 pounds white potatoes, cut into chunks (I use bags of the small potatoes that don’t have to be peeled)
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into similar-sized chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery (optional)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Boil potatoes until just fork tender. Drain potatoes and place in a large bowl. Add celery.
  2. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, curry powder and dill weed.
  3. Mix curried mayonnaise with potatoes. Add salt and pepper, if desired. Serve warm or cold.

Note: If I use the small white potatoes that cook fast, I cook white and sweet potatoes together. If you use a bigger white potato that will take longer to cook than the sweet, cook them separately. You don’t want to end up with mush, although the one time I did overcook the potatoes, I just turned it into curried double potato mashed potatoes, and that was pretty good, too!
