This is an all-American potato salad. Everyone that tried this salad liked it. This recipe is a keeper.
1 1/2 pounds red potatoes
1/2 cup sweet onions, minced
1/2 cup sweet relish
2 boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and pepper
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
- Wash the potatoes, place them into a large pan, and cover them with water. Add a tablespoon of salt. Partially cover the pan with a lid and bring the potatoes to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat to medium and continue cooking for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Drain off the water.
- When potatoes are cool enough to handle, you may either peel them or leave the skins on. Cut them into one-inch cubes. Mash the potatoes in a medium bowl, using either a potato masher or ricer.
- Add the minced onions, sweet relish, chopped boiled eggs, and cheddar cheese. Carefully mix the ingredients into the mashed potatoes.
- Combine the sour cream and mayonnaise and stir into the potato mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
