Great American Potato Salad

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.

    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!
