An all-American necessity at summer get-togethers and reunions, this creamy, old-fashioned potato salad uses pickle relish, eggs, and mustard.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds small all-purpose white or red potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish, drained
  • 3 hard-cooked large eggs, chopped
  • 3/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Place potatoes in a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes or until tender. Drain. Cool and peel. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. Place potatoes in a large bowl; sprinkle with vinegar and oil. Add celery, onion, pickle relish, and eggs; toss gently.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. Spoon mayonnaise mixture over potato mixture; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours.
