Potato Salad

Potato Salad... or as we say in the South... Tater Salad is a must for any gathering, picnic, church social, pot luck, etc. This is also another recipe that I NEVER measure! It's always by look and taste. That being said, I try to come up with recipes for those of you that comment that you NEED a recipe. LOL

Here is what I came up with... try this recipe, and as always, taste and adjust until it's just right for you! :-)

6 potatoes, boiled, peeled and cubed
4 eggs, boiled and peeled

1 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish*
pinch of salt 
fresh ground black pepper

Cut eggs in half and remove yolks and place. Chop egg whites and place in a large bowl with the cubed potatoes. Mash yolks with fork then stir in mayonnaise, mustard, pickle and salt and pepper. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the potatoes and eggs. Stir all ingredients together well. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

* If you don't like the bits of pickle in the potato salad, or if you have a little one that doesn't like pickle, just add 1 tsp of sweet pickle juice from the relish jar. They will never know. I do this for my church crowd, and they always tell me that they love it! Onion is also optional. If you like the flavor, but not chunks of onion, grate the onion and add about a teaspoon to the salad.


  1. Very similar to mine! I dont add the pickle relish, but do add bacon, a little bacon grease and some sour cream.
    I have a hard time with coming up with the actual measurements for my recipes too...ya know it kinda goes a little of this, a little of that and some of Thanks for your recipe. I Love your page...

    Almost like mine but I add about 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish, 1 tsp celery seed and 2 tsp dried minced onion. People who doesn't eat onions can tell the difference. Much better than adding raw celery and raw onion. My family loves my recipe and we never have any leftovers.

  3. Only difference is that I use Miracle Whip instead of mayo, also I do put the onion in it. I also make a barbecue potato salad with bacon, cheese and barbecue sauce, it's awesome.

  4. Much better using chopped sweet pickle, candied dill strips or sweet orange strip pickles. Must have chopped celery too and onions of course!
