Mama's Potato Salad Recipe - Offering Hospitality Recipe Swap
By Stephanie Kay
When thinking of summer picnics, cookouts and barbecues, my Mama's Potato Salad always comes to mind. I didn't know there was any other way to prepare potato salad until I was in college! These days I'm the mama and when fixing potato salad, this is the recipe I use.
Mama's Potato Salad Recipe
4 medium to large white or Russet potatoes (peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces)
1/2 cup of Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise)
3 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1/4 cup of sweet relish
2 boiled eggs, chopped
Boil potatoes until fork tender. Drain potatoes and place them in a large bowl. May leave potatoes as they are OR mash them a little (my mom always made them look like lumpy mashed potatoes).
Add remaining ingredients, stirring after each one. These amounts are approximate and completely to taste! I recommend you taste the salad after stirring in each ingredient. I like mine tangy so I add more mustard.
Yield: 6-8 adult servings
