"This is potato salad the old fashioned way - but with more celery, egg whites only (no yolks), fresh seasonings, and low-fat mayonnaise, it's healthier!" — MakeItHealthy

1 1/2 cups
sweet pickle relish
ground black pepper to taste
I ran a small sweet onion (it turned out a little more than a half cup, but not by much) and the garlic clove through the mini-food processor before adding it to this potato salad. I also used dill pickles instead of sweet pickle relish only because we don't care for sweet pickles. It didn't have enough "liquid" for us--I added a quarter cup more of the mayonnaise and a second tablespoon of dijon mustard. This is a great simple potato salad recipe--everyone loved it. Next time, I'll double it and add more garlic. As with any potato salad, the longer it sits, the better it gets.
I'm not a mustard and sweet relish kind of girl when it comes to my potato salad. This proved me wrong. I enjoyed the taste very much and also the fact that it was much ligher than your typical potato salad.
It was great we made it for 30 ppl and they loved it thanks
A great alternative to a heavy mayonnaise based potato salad. This was loaded with flavor and we enjoyed it. I did cut back on the celery to around 3/4 cup and it was perfect for us. Other than that I followed the recipe as is.
I cut the recipe in half but did not measure the celery and onion because I know my family's preferences. I did measure the rest of the ingredients, though. I will admit - it took all I had to not use the egg yolks. When dinner was finished, I don't think I even missed them!
Another winner....thanks for a lighter potato salad! Still a ton of flavor....I did add the yolks to the salad and I did add a spalsh of white vinegar and some low fat buttermilk to thin the dressing a bit. Other than that I really enjoyed this. Also added some fine diced red pepper for color. Thanks!
This is a yummy potato salad. I start mine a day ahead and pour 2 tbls to 1/4 cup sweet pickle juice over the warm potatoes, add the onion and then marinate in the frig over night. I've always gotten rave reviews!
