Name: Old Fashioned Potato Salad



Yield: 8 servings

Comments: 9/22/2017 - I improvised with only one potato and two eggs. I substituted plain yogurt for mayonnaise. The result was somewhat sweet due to the pickle relish. Gail liked it.
10/21/2017 - Again, I scaled the recipe to one potato. The center of the potato seemed to be overly firm after 15 minutes in boiling water.
8/15/2018 - I used three potatoes, two eggs, and about half a Vidalia onion. I cooked the potatoes for 15 minutes; they could have gone a minute longer. I forgot the mustard, but it was still good.
6/28/2021 - I had 9 baby yellow potatoes. With them, I used 2 eggs, 3/4 cups chopped celery, 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion, 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 cup mayonnaise. I mistakenly also used 1/4 cup yellow mustard instead of 1 teaspoon. We liked the result!
8/10/2021 - I used 2 large and 1 small potato (1 lb 8 oz), 2 eggs, 2 stalks celery (1 cup), 1 medium onion (3/4 cups), 1/4 cup pickle relish, 2 teaspoons Dijon stone-ground mustard, 1/2 teaspoon celery seed, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/4 cup mayonnaise. I needed the largest brown ceramic bowl. The potatoes were a little chewier than I wanted.
