Potato Salad (Mississippi Style)

this is a true Southern potato salad...I prefer dill relish in mine but you can use sweet pickle relish.

How to Make Potato Salad (Mississippi Style)


  1. cut potatoes...rinse and put into large pot. Completely cover potatoes with water. Add a lil salt to the pot.
    Boil potatoes till tender, drain and let cool. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine chopped eggs, mayo, mustard, pickles, salt and pepper. Mix well. Then add potatoes to the mayo mixture, adding in batches so everything mixes together evenly and well. Top potato salad with paprika before serving. I have also used chopped green olives instead of using pickles and this is very good too!
