"Mashed potato salad that can be made with or without the chopped egg. This is the only kind of potato salad my dad will eat; try it and you'll see why." — MICKE

Yukon Gold potatoes
sweet onion, diced
hard-cooked eggs, chopped
chopped sweet pickles
salt and ground black pepper to taste
sweet pickle juice
prepared yellow mustard
I used chopped garlic dills and the juice from the garlic dill pickle jar instead of sweet pickles/sweet pickle juice. It's really just a personal preferance. I slightly mashed the potatoes to have a little more texture to the salad. Simple and delicious--my husband said it reminded him of his mother's potato salad. For those of you who have not tried mashed potato salad, you've got to try it.
This recipe was absolutely awesome. Made twice the batch and made enough for two different events. Keeps well, and was super popular!! Made no alterations to the recipe, made as is... perfect just the way it's written!! Thanks, and Happy Cooking!!
FINALLY...someone else that mashes their potatoes for potato salad...so much more flavour and makes for great presentation if you use an ice cream scoop and place on lettuce leaves for individual servings - thanks for posting your recipe Micke
Awesome very easy to make! Made it
for dinner today and the family loved it.
The only part I didn't like was peeling the
potatoes but is was worth it! You
got to try it.
Love it! Much easier than traditional (chopped) potato salad. I added mustard to taste and sprinkled in some celery salt.
This is the recipe I've been looking for. I wanted a potato salad recipe that was simple, but tasty, and one that resembles my mother's. She got Alzheimers and never wrote down her recipe. This is the closest recipe I've ever found to what she used to make. Thank you so much!!
Very good whether or not you truly mash the potatoes!
Great, simple recipe! Couldn't find a few things locally so I substituted the sweet pickle with relish and mayonnaise with Spanish salad mayonnaise. Flavor was pretty good too!
