This is the potato salad many generations of my family has grown up with. I have fond memories as a child of helping my granny dig "taters" and then making this potato salad. This was always a required side dish for holiday dinners!

Ingredients

6 large
potatoes
1/2 c
onion, diced
1/2 c
sweet relish
3 large
egg, hard boiled, diced
pinch
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
white vinegar
1/2 c
water
2 Tbsp
mustard (prepared)
3 large
eggs, beaten
1 1/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash potatoes. Place potatoes, skins on, in a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Boil potatoes 20-30 minutes, or until fork tender.
2
Remove potatoes from heat and rinse in cold water. Let sit about 10 minutes in cool water until they are cooled enough to handle.
3
Once cooled, peel potatoes, skins should easily pull off the potatoes. Once peeled, dice potatoes to desired size.
4
In a large mixing bowl, combine the diced potatoes, sweet relish, diced hard-boiled eggs, and salt & pepper. Set aside.
5
In a saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, water, and salt & pepper (if desired). Bring to a boil over medium heat.
6
Once mixture comes to a boil, quickly wisk/stir in the beaten eggs and continue stirring well for 5 minutes over medium heat or until the mixture starts to slightly thicken (will coat the back of the spoon).
7
Once cooked mixture thickens, remove from heat and stir in the mayonnaise. Stir well to combine all ingredients.
8
Once the cooked mixture is throughly combined, pour over the potato mixture and stir well.
9
You may serve this salad at room temperature or serve chilled.
