  • 5 c. boiled, cubed potatoes (about 5-6 potatoes)
  • 2 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 t. sugar
  • 2 t. vinegar
  • 2/3 c. chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 c. mayonnaise (add more if necessary)
  • 1 t. prepared mustard
  • 3 large hard boiled eggs
  • 2 T. chopped sweet pickle (or sweet pickle relish)
  • 1/4 c. celery (optional)

  2. Let the potatoes cool a bit. Peel and cube them.

  3. In a large bowl, sprinkle the potatoes with the seasonings and vinegar.

  4. Add onion, chopped egg whites, chopped pickles, and celery (if you prefer celery).

  5. Mix the egg yolks with mayonnaise and mustard.

  6. Toss the mayonnaise mixture with the potatoes.

  7. Chill well before serving.
