Everyone that has eaten this - hot or cold (I prefer it warm!) - say it's one of the best potato salads they've eaten. With all the ingredients mashed together, it blends the flavors perfectly.

  • 5 lb
    potatoes, russets (or your choice)
  • 12
    large eggs, boiled
  • 1
    large onion - chopped fine
  • 5 Tbsp
    sweet pickle relish or chopped sweet pickles (your preference)
  • 1/2 c
    yellow mustard (more to taste if you'd like)
  • 1 c
    real mayonnaise (more to taste)

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.
  2. 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!
