Southern Potato Salad Recipe

Southern Potato Salad Recipe


  • 2 lbs potatoes peeled and diced
  • 7 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise -
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 4 TBSP sweet pickle relish
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place eggs in a pan covered with cold water. When the water starts to boil, reduce to low and simmer uncovered for 1 minute .
  2. Remove from heat and COVER and let stand for 20 minutes. Or you can bake your eggs in the oven for the perfect hard boiled egg!
  3. Peel and dice the potatoes into about 1 inch pieces.
  4. Cover them with water and bring them to a boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander.
  5. 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.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix the other ingredients together.
  7. Then add the potatoes and mix gently.
  8. ENJOY!!!
