Mashed Potato Salad

After living in Texas during my high school and college years, I learned to like mashed potato salad.  The ones usually served there were similar to this recipe from the "Farm Journal Country Cookbook" but added quite a bit of yellow prepared mustard and usually chopped hard cooked egg and pickle relish.   I have to say, I didn’t miss them in this very good, simple mashed potato salad; that said, my husband wanted a little mustard stirred into his.   
This would be a good use for left-over mashed potatoes, but were certainly worth cooking a few potatoes for.  We enjoyed it with grilled sandwiches, but it goes with all the picnic or barbeque standbys.  We tried it hot and liked it, and it was good cold too.

  2. Oh, that looks so good! Tramp 1 doesn't like hard boiled eggs so this will be a perfect salad to make for him. Thanks!
