Mom's Homemade Potato Salad

Total Time
Prep 30 mins

I am putting this recipe on-line to share with others in honor of my late Mother. She made it for me as a kid so I don't know of the source.


  1. peel, chop, and boil potatoes (the pieces should be a cubic centimeter).
  2. hard boils the eggs.
  3. in a large bowl combine mustard, mayo, and relish.
  4. add the potatoes and mix with a wooden spoon.
  5. cut up the eggs or crumble them.
  6. add the eggs to the large bowl and you should have potato salad
  7. let the mixture stand in the fridge for a few hours or until cold.
  8. enjoy!

I made this for my family and they liked it. But personally it had way too much mustard. It was so tart I almost didn't eat anymore. But my family seemed to be okay with it. I probably wont make it again.

This is very similar to my Mom's potato salad, she is serving since I was a child. So maybe the origin is in Europe or even Germany ? I tried it and it is very good. Sometimes we have this for a light supper with franks. For a little less fat version I sometimes mix sour cream into the salad. Thanks for posting!
