Servings 6 servings


  • 5 Yukon Gold potatoes medium size
  • Water to cover
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish more if needed to flavor potatoes
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery finely chopped
  • 1 hard boiled egg diced
  • 1/2-3/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash paprika


  • Boil the washed, unpeeled potatoes in the water and salt, until tender, 20-25 minutes.
  • Drain off water
  • Peel potatoes
  • Dice in 1/2 inch sizes, use potatoes that crumble into pieces or somewhat mashed
  • Add the pickle relish to absorb into the potatoes to add flavor, more or less as needed for taste.
  • Add the vegetables and egg to the potatoes
  • Combine mayonnaise, prepared mustard and celery seed.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Carefully stir dressing into the potatoes, vegetables and egg.
  • Refrigerate overnight.


My preference is mashed potato salad, so having crumbles or broken bits of potato pieces is not a problem. A firmer potato will result by not cooking it as long if preference is for a bigger bite of the potato.
