Equipment Needed

Pot– Use a deep medium-sized pot with a lid to cook the potatoes.

Bowls Only 2 mixing bowls are needed, one small and one large.

Colander– Use a regular colander to drain the potatoes. Metal or plastic is fine.

Knife– Use this to cut the potatoes into pieces.

Wooden Spoon– I used this to stir the ingredients together.


Main Ingredients Of This Dish

Potatoes– I used 3 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes as they hold their shape even after boiling. You can also use Yellow Finn or Red Potatoes.

Eggs– I used 4 hard-boiled eggs in the recipe.



Sweet Pickled Relish– If you don’t have any sweet pickle relish or you don’t like the taste, you can substitute it with dill pickle relish instead. Just use an equal amount in the recipe.

Yellow Mustard– Don’t wanna use yellow mustard? No worries, Dijon mustard works great as a replacement.


All The Ingredients

  • Potatoes– Boiled, skinned, and chopped.
  • Onion– Diced and combined with potatoes and celery.
  • Celery Stalk– Diced and mixed into the potato salad.
  • Eggs– Hard-boiled, diced, and folded into the season potatoes.
  • Mayonnaise– Combined with the other dressing ingredients.
  • Relish– Adds a tart flavor and crunchy texture to the potato salad.
  • Celery Salt– Used to season the dressing for the salad.
  • Salt– Used to enhance the taste of the dressing.
  • Black Pepper– Adds spice to the salad.
  • Paprika– Added as a garnish to the potato salad.


How To Make Potato Salad

  1. Using a deep pot, cover the unpeeled potatoes in water and cook over high heat until it starts to boil.
  2. Turn down to medium heat and continue boiling for 20-25 minutes until a fork goes through easily.
  3. Use a colander to drain off the hot water and rinse the potatoes in cold water until cool.
  4. Carefully remove the skin from the potatoes and chop into small pieces.
  5. Gently mix the potatoes with the onions, celery then season with salt and toss to combine.
  6. Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, pepper, celery salt, and pickle relish in a small mixing bowl, add to the seasoned potatoes, and gently incorporate it.
  7. Fold the chopped eggs into the salad, then season with salt and pepper as needed.
  8. Top with paprika and refrigerate for at least 60 minutes or until ready to serve.


Rinse The Potatoes

After boiling the potatoes to tenderness, I immediately poured off the hot water and rinsed them under cold water. This process achieved two things; first, it cooled the potatoes and stopped the cooking process, and secondly, it helped to rinse off the extra starch from the potatoes.


The Alternate Way

To make this salad, I boiled the potatoes until tender, then remove the skin and chopped them into pieces before combining them with the remaining ingredients. Another way to make this dish is to peel and cut the potatoes into cubes, boil them, drain the water, and combine with spices and the homemade dressing. 


How To Store Potato Salad

To store the leftovers of this delicious potato dish, refrigerate or freeze it. To keep it in the fridge, place the leftovers in an airtight storage dish for about 2-4 days. To freeze, place in a resealable bag, release as much air as possible, then freeze for up to 3 months.


Tasty potatoes cooked until tender, seasoned to perfection with spices, and combine with a rich and creamy dressing and boiled eggs. This hearty salad can be eaten as a meal or as a side with your favorite meat dishes. It is quick to make, low-cost, and filling!
