Potato Salad??? - Page 2

post #21 of 25

Whole Hog potato salad

I'm not positive but having eaten a LOT of the Whole Hog tater salad at the Cantrell Rd Little Rock location, I've been trying to figure it out myself.
I'm not positive but, I think it is Mayonnaise and Ranch dressing based. It does have meat in it, i don't think it's bacon bits, (at lest at the Cantrell loc). I think the meat is either brisket or pulled pork. I also like the way the potatoes are sliced and not cubed or diced or mashed. I work a block away from the Whole Hog, so all this talk has made me decide that's where I'll be found at lunch today, doing more research.

this is how my missus use to like her potato salad before the dreaded diet..lol

here is my potato salad... like any recipe, you can very it to taste and appearance...

3lbs red potatos, boiled and cubed
1 16oz container sour cream, none of that low fat crap
1/2 cup mayo or miracle whip
1 Tbls garlic powder
1/4 cup onion, minced finely
2 oz bacon bits, yes the real ones
1 tsp Tony C's or Zatarains Cajun Spice
1/4 cup freshly chopped chives
1/4 cup celery (i dont use it, missus doesnt like)
1 Tbls dill pickle relish
fresh cracked pepper
cheddar cheese (optional, i dont use it either)
  • boil and cube your potatoes.
  • mix wet ingredients with the spices in a separate bowl.
  • combine potatoes,celery,onions,wet ingredients
  • stir in bacon
  • sprinkle top with a little more bacon,chives and cheddar cheese
Good when warm, Better when you eat 3 hours later, Great refridgerated overnight

I wish I was still close enough research. :) If you learn anything let us know. I'll be monitoring this thread.

I wonder if you just ask them what's in their salad if they may give a hint or 2....

Similar to Whole Hogs...

I tasted some good tater salad this past weekend in San Antonio, TX at a place called Joseph's Storehouse Restaurant & Bakery , it's about a block away from the Zoo.
Anyway, it seemed very similar to Whole Hogs, without the meat and a bit more of a pickle taste. Very good none-the-less.
We discussed whole hogs potato salad at work and some think it may be a mayo/sourcream not just mayo or ranch, I'm still leaning toward ranch personally.

I've never liked potato salad, and that's odd because I like potatoes most any way you can cook them, I even like cold bakers with mayo, but not potato salad. Its something about the normal cold diced cubes of spud that puts me off, and then I had one of those brain storms that seemed like it just might work. I like French fries with mayo, ketchup, mustard, or just about anything so has anyone ever tired making....are you ready?


If so how was it? If not I'm going totry and make some, seems like a good idea to me.
