This recipe is going to take you about 45 m to prepare, cook time is 15 m, and you’ll be already in around 1 h.


  • 5 potatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise


  1. Boil the potatoes until they are soft, yet still firm, I call it al dente but I am not sure that goes for potatoes. Drain them and set them to cool. When they are cool peel the skin off and cube them up.
  2. Boil the eggs for about a quarter hour then take them off and leave them in the water. When they are cool drain them and peel the skin off and cube them up.
  3. Mix your ingredients together in a large bowl; combine the potatoes, eggs, celery, onion, relish, garlic salt, celery salt, mustard, pepper and mayonnaise. Put the salad in the refrigerator and allow it to chill before serving it.
