    Recipes Mashed Potato Salad

      Mashed Potato Salad
      6 medium size potatoes (2-1/2 lbs. unpeeled potatoes)
      1/3 cup sweet pickled relish (all ready chilled)
      2 tablespoons diced onion
      1/3 cup diced celery
      salt and pepper, season according to taste
      1 tablespoon 5% white vinegar
      2 tablespoons granulated sugar
      1 cup salad dressing (all ready chilled)
      5 large eggs, hard-boiled and chopped
      Peel, cut, and cook potatoes as for making mashed potatoes.
      When done cooking, drain the potatoes well, and then mash them.
      To the mashed potatoes, add the relish, onion, celery, salt and pepper.
      In a medium size bowl mix the vinegar and sugar; mix until sugar is dissolved.
      Add the salad dressing to the vinegar/sugar mixture, and mix well.
      Pour the salad dressing mixture into the mashed potatoes, and mix throughly.
      (If the potatoes seem too dry, add more of the salad dressing.)
      Fold in the chopped eggs.
      Serve salad immediately while still warm, or serve it at room temp,
      or refrigerate the salad overnight, and serve it the next day.
      Yields: 9-10 servings (or 3 lbs. of potato salad)
      Note: One thing I wanted to mention... if you were to use already "chilled" relish, hard boiled eggs and salad dressing, it helps to cool down the heated mashed potatoes, so you can eat this potato salad once your done preparing it. We enjoy this salad served warm, at room temp, or even chilled and eaten the next day. Also, I found it only took me 1 hour to prepare this salad.

      Naiwen, I don't think I know anyone who doesn't like mash potatoes.
      If you love mash potatoes... Do you also like garlic mashed potatoes?
      If so, have I got a recipe for you!!

      That sounds delicious DG and definitely better than just plain mashed potato :)

      Thanks for sharing.

      Naiwen & Shortie, Just to let you know... I don't have a photo of the garlic mashed potatoes, as I don't always have photos of everything I've made. Also, I do have some other really good potato, side dish/vegetables recipes (but no photos included) that I think you and others would like, and I if so, I could post them as well (and when I have the time).
