"This recipe is mayonnaise-based, but if you like a mustard-based potato salad, just experiment a little," say Trisha. "Add some yellow mustard and leave out a little bit of mayonnaise."

  • Place the potatoes in a Dutch oven. Add 2 tsp. salt and enough water to cover the potatoes. Boil the potatoes for 20 to 30 minutes (time will depend on size of potatoes), or until they are tender when pierced with the point of a knife but hold their shape. Drain the potatoes, transfer them to a large mixing bowl, and allow them to cool completely. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Add the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, and sweet relish. Gently fold to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Hi Tricia! Ever since my mom passed in 2010 I have been trying to replicate her potato salad recipe. I saw your show the other day which featured potato salad at a barbecue. I tried it, and I love it! It's as close to my mother's as I can come! Thanks so much! Gary Jesseman

I really loved this salad, it was super easy to make and it tasted delicious. My husband also loved it and had 2 helpings. I made it with her fried chicken and it was a fabulous meal. My husband said it was delicious also. I would make it again, it is very similar to how I used to make my own but this time I have a recipe to follow!

Delicious, easy base for potato salad.  I did add celery, onions, dill, and crisp bacon because my husband likes it this way.Thank you, Trisha!  Next is Garth's pasta salad!

It was okay, but I think I like celery better than pickle relish, and then I also don't get the high fructose corn syrup from the relish.
