How To Make mashed potato salad

  • 1
    Cook potatoes and eggs until done. While cooking, mince onion and pickles (sweet pickle relish will save you chopping the pickles). Once potatoes and eggs are done, put in a large bowl and mash (I used a potato masher and have even used an electric mixer for even better results!) Add onions, relish/pickles, mustard and mayonnaise. Mix until well blended. At this point you can refrigerate OR put in a small crockpot and leave on low till serving time.

    This recipe is easy to adapt to your own taste. Some people like more mustard/mayonnaise, some people like more pickles, or even use dill pickles. It's totally up to your taste. Enjoy!
