This mustard-style Great American Potato Salad is a traditional, basic potato salad—perfect for a Memorial Day picnic or any summer meal. It’s such a great summer side dish. I found this recipe over at KraftRecipes.com and I think it’s really good!
This potato salad has lots of good things in it like chopped hard-boiled eggs, onion, celery, and some dill pickle relish (if you prefer sweet pickle relish, you could substitute that). The recipe didn’t say anything about peeling the potatoes, so I left the skins on—it’s nice not to have to peel potatoes if you don’t have to! 🙂 I also added just a bit more relish. I like the texture of this salad—it’s nice and creamy, and it’s great served over lettuce leaves, too.
