Potato Salad

I finally have found a potato salad recipe that works for me - and for the rest of the household.  I don't mind hard-boiled eggs in my potato salad but I'm the only one.  So, I came up with this recipe which is more on the Southern side with pickle juice, onion, and vinegar.


5 lb red  potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
1 cup chopped celery
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup sweet relish
2 tbsp pickle juice
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
2 tbsp parsley (fresh or dried)
Salt and pepper to taste

  • Bring a large stock pot filled with water to boil.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into large cubes.
  • Rinse the potatoes and then dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel.
  • Boil potatoes until just tender, about 10 minutes.  Drain and cool.
  • Toss remaining ingredients, except for salt and pepper in large bowl.  Gently add cooled potatoes.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chill and serve.
