How to Make Southern Mashed Potato Salad


  1. Boil potatoes until tender (not mushy), mash potatoes the same as you would for regular mashed potatoes. A little lumpy is okay! I like the potatoes the same consistency that I do my regular mashed potatoes.
  2. In a separate pot, boil eggs at the same time as you are boiling potatoes. For approximately the same length of time! Cool, peel and set aside!
  3. Add, butter (little milk if desired) add & blend all other ingredients except boiled eggs. Dice eggs and fold into mashed potato mix. Salt and Pepper to desired taste! Enjoy!
