Recipe type: Main
Serves: 6-8
  • 5 Medium Russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 3 Large eggs
  • ½ Cup diced onion
  • ½ Cup diced celery
  • 1¼ Cup sweet pickle relish
  • ¾ Cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon celery seed
  • 1½ Tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 Large Roma tomatoes, quartered and sliced
  • Paprika (if desired)
  1. Start by peeling 5 medium Russet potatoes then slice and cut into cubes about ¾ of an inch. Rinse these in cold water several times before putting them on the stove to cook on high. When they come to a boil, cook them for about 6 to 7 minutes. You want them done, but not falling apart.
  2. While the potatoes cook, dice up ½ cup of onions and ½ cup of celery. Put 3 large eggs on to boil. Taking 2 large Roma tomatoes, quarter them length-wise and then seed and cut them crosswise into ¼ inch slices.
  3. Mix the onions, celery, and tomatoes with 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon of celery seed, 1½ tablespoons of dried parsley, ¾ cup of mayonnaise, and 1¼ cup of sweet pickle relish for a tasty dressing. Dice 2 of the hard boiled eggs and add that to the dressing mixture. Slice the other egg and use it for a garnish on top of the potato salad.
  4. When the potatoes are done, drain them and let them stand for a few minutes to cool off. Next place the potatoes in a bowl and pour the dressing mixture over them. Stir the dressing and potatoes together gently. You don't want to break the potatoes apart otherwise it will turn into a dish more than mashed potatoes rather than potato salad.
  5. Place the egg slices over the top of the potato salad and then sprinkle with paprika, if desired.
