One of the favorite side dishes at these events seems to be potato salad. There are many varieties of potato salad; however, besides the potatoes, they all have one thing in common: it is essential to keep any variety properly cooled at all times. No one wants to be remembered for poisoning everyone at an outing.

This particular recipe is for old-fashioned potato salad. Additional recipes will be shared soon, so stay tuned.

Ingredients:

  • 5 potatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup sweet pickle relish
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • ground black pepper to taste

  3. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water.
  4. Bring water to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
