My mom had 2 versions of "tater" salad but this was by far my all time fav. I even licked the bowl when i was a kid. The hardest thing about this recipe is, my mom never measured anything, so im kinda guessing on the measurements here, especially the potatoes.

How to Make Mom's Tater Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together sugar and mayo, add mustard and relish. Let stand for sugar to dissolve. Meanwhile boil potatoes til almost done (otherwise will turn into mashed tater salad). Drain, let cool. Add dressing and onions, adding more mayo and sweet relish as needed. Fold in eggs. I like to have 1-2 extra eggs to slice onto top for looks, sprinkle with paprika.
