"I have been working very hard since I married to come up with a perfect potato salad. This is it - a sweet, creamy recipe made with red potatoes. Very tasty. You can substitute sweet pickle relish for the sweet pickle cubes."

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Place eggs in a medium saucepan, and cover completely with cold water. 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, and peel under cold, running water. Chop, and set aside.
  3. Stir the eggs, celery, green bell pepper, sweet pickle cubes, prepared mustard, mayonnaise, onion and white sugar into the potatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving.

I didn't make 12 servings because I only had 4 potatoes. I kind of guessed at the proportions. Very tasty. I still like mom's potato salad made with onions and cucumbers but hubby is from the So...

Great recipe! We don't like celery or sweet pickles, so I used dill pickle relish and dill weed instead. Also added sliced black olives and green onions. Disappeared right quick, it did!

Excellent! Doesn't need that "teaspoon of sugar". Really delish!
