  • 3 lb potatoes peeled, such as Yukon gold
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 eggs hard boiled, peeled and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tbsp mustard regular prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp dill fresh, chopped


  • Cut the potatoes in quarters and place them in a large pot. Fill the pot with cold water until it is one inch over the top of the potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling add 1 tbsp of salt and cook the potatoes until fork tender, 13 to 15 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl mix the mayonnaise, relish, mustard, salt and pepper, mix until smooth. 
  • Drain the potatoes of all the water. Once cooled enough to handle, chop the potatoes into bite size chunks. Place them in a large bowl. Gently mix in the dressing until the potatoes are coated well. Add the eggs, celery, onions, dill and toss. Garnish with more fresh dill.
  • Cover the salad with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours before serving. 


Because of the mayonnaise and eggs in this salad, be sure to keep it stored in the refrigerator, until ready to serve. I recommend that you store potato salad in an airtight and moisture-proof container. It will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
I wouldn't recommend freezing this salad because a key ingredient of potato salad - mayo - does not freeze well. The other ingredients such as celery and hard boiled eggs become mushy when thawed so try to make this day of or a few days ahead.
