This was off the hook. I'm not a cook so when I do I use recipes. My family enjoyed it. I added in a packet of onion seasoning. If brought the flavor out more. Great recipe!

This is a great salad and it's close to how my grandma makes it! I only add sliced radishes to mine:) I also sometimes add chopped green peppers it depends on what I have on hand but whenever I make this it always takes me back to my childhood!

I liked this recipe. I made it today and it came out good, even though I forgot to buy the sweet relish..but it came out good anyway

An earlier edit to the directions also accidentally changed the amount of pepper from 1/8 tsp. (as originally posted by Woaha) to 3/23 tsp. I changed the recipe back to 1/8 tsp. pepper. [I made edits to this recipe.]

I don't measure everything exactly - just like mom used to make, lol. But this is just as close to her "recipe" as I can find. (though I'm not sure how one would measure 3/23 of a tsp!) We cut up the potatoes before boiling, though. Can't cook them as long when you do so, else they'll fall apart when stirring up the mixture.

Sorry I didn't watch the time! I used a garlic pepper grind for the seasoning instead of basic salt and pepper, about 1 1/2 tbsp. It consists of Black Peppercorns, Chopped Garlic, Sea Salt, Crushed Red Pepper, and Crushed Green Bell Peppers. Otherwise I followed exactly and it was written. Great! Just like Grandma used to make. Nice to have ready to eat in the refridgerator for an anytime snack, or to serve with any meal. The Kids loved it! Rick

A very good basic potato salad recipe. As variations, I have added 1 to 2 teaspoons celery seeds and some finely minced cornichons (French word for gherkins). I also like to combine the egg yolks with the seasonings in the recipe. I separate the hard-cooked egg yolks from the whites. I chop the whites and add to the potatoes. I mash the yolks and stir in the mayonnaise, mustard and seasonings before adding to the potatoes. To save cooking time, potatoes can be peeled and cubed before boiling until tender in a large pot of salted water. When cooking cubed potatoes, I add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to the cooking water which helps the potatoes retain their texture rather than becoming mushy and mashed when you mix all the ingredients.

This is an excellent salad to go with an outdoor BBQ. Our family loves to serve this with Hamburgers or Brauts.
