  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 20 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, relish, mustard, hard-cooked eggs and celery. Cut the potatoes into cubes, and add to the bowl. Mix gently until coated. Garnish with a sprinkling of paprika, and arrange crackers around the edge.

This is like my grandmother used to make. And yes, the mustard should be tablespoons, not cup! We always use diced pickles instead of the pickle relish as well.

It sure sounded like too much mustard, but tried it and it was!! Maybe it is a misprint and should be 3/4 Tablespoon.

I reduced the amount of mustard and probably needed a little more. I also forgot the paprika, left out the celery and used only 6 eggs. I should have used more eggs, mustard and maybe even mayo so it would be a little creamier. Everyone enjoyed it and my daughter LOVED it.

The ingredient amounts sound wrong to me for potato salad. I only put about a teaspoon of mustard in a cup of mayo - 3/4 cup sounds like it would really be mustardy!

I followed the recipe exactly an dit seemed like there wasn't enough dressing or eggs. Maybe my potatoes were too big. It was very good though. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Too much mustard the first time I made it. Cut it back the next and it was great. Love the egg in it.
