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.

I think it’s potato salad season as I am seeing a lot of potato salad recipes. Ahhh! Your potato salad looks incredibly good! This makes me want to make one, too. Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday party!
Thanks, Jhuls! Yes, it definitely is potato salad season! 🙂
Sounds delicious – I’d really like mustard in my potato salad. Truly a good idea here. (I also like potato salad recipes that incorporate hard boiled eggs, too.) Seasonings make this seem quite worth the making! Something tasty to consider bringing to a couple summer outdoor potlucks I’ll be attending… Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday!
A classic for sure!
Yes, all the summer picnics and potlucks don’t seem like they would be complete without potato salad! 🙂

Love me a good potato salad! I don’t need any side dishes at a BBQ as long as I have potato salad!

That sounds a lot like my recipe (the one in my head). I have been making it more often now that we have sandwiches for dinner at least once a week. – Margy
