If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories, then you’ve probably met my Granny via my stories. This Mustard Potato Salad is her favorite and she claims it tastes just like the Potato Salad her mom always made growing up. I think that’s a pretty good recommendation! I will say, this recipe uses sweet pickle relish so this Mustard Potato Salad has a slight sweet taste to it. I would call this a more Amish style Mustard Potato Salad.

So let’s start with the basics. Grab several large russet potatoes – I ended up using four large potatoes. Peel the skin from the potatoes using a potato peeler, then wash any dirt from the peeled potatoes.

Once the potatoes have been peeled and rinsed, dice them into large chunks.

Place all of the chunks of potato into a two quart or larger slow cooker OR place into a large sauce pan on the stove.

Whether you choose to slow cook these potatoes or cook them on the stove top, be sure to cover the potatoes with water.

If you’re slow cooking the potatoes, place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high four hours or low six hours. If you’re cooking the potatoes on the stove top, turn the heat to medium high heat and bring to a boil. Boil the potatoes for about ten minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.

Once the cooking time is complete, remove the potatoes from the heat and pour off all of the water using a colander.

Place the potatoes into a large mixing bowl and start mashing them with a potato masher. You don’t have to just pulverize the potatoes but you need to make sure there are no large chunks.

Now it’s time to add the good stuff. Add in half of a cup of mayonnaise and half of a cup of mustard.

Once the mayonnaise and mustard has been added to the potatoes, stir well until all ingredients are well combined.
