  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, cool, peel, and chop.

  3. Combine potatoes, egg whites, celery, onion, relish, mayonnaise, mustard, celery seed, garlic, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix together well and refrigerate until chilled.
