This is my mother's prized potato salad. You will love it.
Servings: Serves 6–8
Ingredients 2 pounds Yukon gold or new red potatoes , peeled and cubed1/2 cup sweet pickle relish5 hard-boiled eggs , chopped2 tsp. yellow prepared mustard1 cup mayonnaise1/2 onion , chopped1 tsp. celery seeds or 4 celery ribs , finely choppedSalt and freshly ground black pepper to taste4 slices bacon , cooked and crumbled for garnish1 red bell pepper , chopped, for garnishCider vinegar to taste
Cover the potatoes with water and cook in a large pot over medium-high heat until just tender, about 6 minutes. Check the potatoes frequently, making sure they do not overcook.
Drain the potatoes in a colander and run cold water over them to let them cool. Transfer the potatoes back to pot.
Add the relish, eggs, mustard, mayonnaise, onion, celery seeds and salt and pepper, mixing gently. (For variety, I sometimes use dill relish instead of the sweet relish.)
Garnish with bacon, red pepper and a sprinkling of vinegar, if desired.
