  • 2

    lbs of potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 7

    hard boiled eggs, chopped

  • 1

    cup of mayonnaise – (I’m a Hellman’s girl myself)

  • 1

    tsp yellow mustard

  • 4

    TBSP of sweet pickle relish

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Place eggs in a pan covered with cold water. When the water starts to boil, reduce the to low and simmer uncovered for 1 minute . Remove from heat and COVER and let stand for 20 minutes. Peel and dice the potatoes into about 1 inch pieces. Cover them with water and bring them to a boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander. Let the potatoes cool before mixing so they won’t crumble. I actually put mine in a bowl in the refrigerator for about an hour. In a separate bowl, mix the other ingredients together. Then add the potatoes and mix gently.
