Traditional Potato Salad w/a Twist

This is a great potato salad for all your spring/summer gatherings. Make note in the instructions of how I added the onion. Also, for a little extra zing, I use Famous Dave’s Signature Spicy Pickle Relish or Wickle’s Pickle Relish.


  • 6 med red potatoes cubed and boiled
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • Salt for water
  • 4 boiled eggs chopped
  • 1 small white onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 T yellow mustard
  • 1/3 cup Famous Dave’s Pickle Relish, Wickle’s Pickle Relish, or plain sweet pickle relish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cajun Seasoning or paprika to garnish

  1. Cube potatoes (skin on or skin off – your family’s preference rules here) and boil in salted water with minced garlic until potatoes are tender but still firm.  About 15 minutes.
  2. Boil eggs – Start eggs in cold water and bring to a simmer.  Simmer 15 minutes.  Drain and keep adding cool water over eggs until they are completely cooled.
  3. While potatoes and eggs are cooking, chop onion
  4. Drain cooked potatoes in a colander and place chopped onion in bottom of pot.  Cover onion with hot drained potatoes and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Peel and chop boiled eggs
  6.  Add mayo, mustard, eggs, and pickle relish, paprika and stir
  7. Taste and tweak with salt and pepper or Cajun Seasoning
