Sometimes all I want is a simple potato salad~no frills. Over the years I have gotten so "fancy" with potato salad, it doesn't taste like potato salad anymore. For those times when you just want a simple potato salad...well this is the one! The portions are small because I usually throw this together just for 1 or 2 people. Feel free to double or triple the ingredients.

lg or 4 med russet potatoes
celery stalks, sliced thin
1 sm
or 1/2 medium sweet yellow onion, diced
1/2-3/4 c
hellman's mayo
1 tsp
yellow mustard
1 c
sweet pickle relish
salt and pepper to taste
4-6 large
boiled eggs, peeled and quartered (i forgot to add these in the original post)


1Clean potatoes w/ a veggie brush. Pour cold tap water over potatoes (skins still on) just enough to cover them. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and allow them to simmer for 20-25 min.
2In the meantime, make the dressing. Combine rest of ingredients in a bowl (except eggs) and mix well with a big spoon.
3**NOTE** At this time make an ice water bath in a large bowl.
Check potatoes for doneness. When they are tender, drain boiling water off them; place them in the ice water bath for a few minutes, till they are cool enough to peel.
4After peeling, cut into big chunks and add quartered hard boiled eggs in with potatoes. GENTLY FOLD the dressing onto the potatoes and eggs. Allow to chill for an hour or two, to let the dressing marinate the potatoes.
