Mom's Mashed Potato Salad Recipe
Light and fluffy mashed potatoes make a deliciously light and fluffy potato salad. With hard cooked eggs, sweet pickles, and sweet onion, this dish is sure to be a summer favorite.
These are so good, you'll want to run out in the middle of the night and buy up all the red and Yukon gold potatoes at the market. This dynamic duo and the mayonnaise/mustard/sour cream dressing, make all the difference. Serves six.
This is a recipe my boyfriend's mother always made for him growing up. I made it, at his request, for his birthday, and it was a huge hit at the party!
I'm from Idaho and I've had my share of potato salad. I made this for a gathering at our church and doubled it and it was gone so fast. People kept coming up to me asking for the recipe, delicious! I used yellow potatoes and didn't peel them. Everything else was exactly like the recipe.
I made this for Memorial Day. I used sweet relish ( instead of pickles) and chives ( instead of onions). None of us knew about mashed potato salad, but it is now requested for the 4th. Very good and easy. Everyone loved it! This is my new potato salad.
This was my mom's recipe, but she used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo and dill pickles instead of sweet. For a meal, she would fry some baloney and fill them with warm mashed potato salad.
Wow, this makes way more than 8 servings! My 6 potatoes were close to 4 pounds, so obviously I had to up the volume of pickle juice, mayo, and mustard. Way more. I also used extra pickles (I used dill instead of sweet, personal preference). It is very good though! I'd watch the onion though, it tastes a little strong, even with my 4 lbs of potatoes. Great base recipe though! I also suggest mixing the mayo/pickle juice/mustard combo while mashing to make sure it is nice and smooth. It helped me get the flavor of the potatoes right before adding everything else.
