Why I Love This Recipe

The first dish I learned to make from my mother is potato salad. It was a hit and I have been making it ever since. I made it for my girlfriend when she invited her boyfriend to dinner and they ended up married. I made it for my co-workers at a potluck and they are still raving about it. I do like other's potato salad but mine has a little kick my mother taught me about.

Ingredients You'll Need

potatoes (I like red or Yukon gold)
dijon mustard
india relish
spike seasoning


Boil about five potatoes until you are able to pierce with a fork

drain potatoes with a towel over them

boil 3 eggs until hard boiled

cut potatoes into 1/2 inch squares, place in large bowl (or use the pot you cooked them in)

dice the eggs place in bowl

dice 1/2 large onion or one small onion

mix 1 cup mayo, two tbsp mustard, 1 tbsp india relish and 1 and 1/2 tsp of spike seasoning with potatoes and eggs. The mixture should be creamy not thick. You can thin the mixture with white wine if necessary

move mixture to a bowl

sprinkle top of potato salad with paprika for color
