Perfect Party Potato Salad

Oh, the weather is getting warmer.  That means it's time to get ready for summer BBQs, picnics, and potlucks!  Yippee!  :)  I love being able to enjoy the warm and sunny evenings and eating more meals outside on the patio.  This weather just calls for getting together with family and friends and sharing a big ol' meal.  One of my favorite things to bring to a summer BBQ is my potato salad that I have been perfecting over the years.  This is the best potato salad I have ever had!  It is perfect with burgers, hot dogs, grilled meats and veggies, just about anything you want to eat during the summer.  The relish gives it a sweetness, while the yellow and dijon mustards give it a slight tangy flavor.  The celery salt is my favorite addition.  I hope you try this recipe sometime this summer and let me know how you like it!


5 medium russet potatoes
1/2 large onion, chopped
6 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 C sweet pickle relish + some relish juice
1 1/2 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 C mayo
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp celery salt


  1. Boil the potatoes until tender.  Allow to cool.  Peel and dice them to desired size and place them in a large bowl.  Add the onions. 
  2. Separate the egg whites and egg yolks.  Place the yolks in a small bowl and set aside.  Chop the whites and add them with the potatoes and onions.  Add the relish.
  3. To the yolks, add the mustards, mayo, sugar, salt, and celery salt.  Mash everything together.
  4. Add the yolk mixture to the potato mixture and stir to combine.  Cover bowl and chill for a few hours before serving.
