Forester Potato Salad

Hi ya'll, no southern family would be complete without their own on potato salad so today, I am so thrilled to be bringing you ours!!!  Hubby & I have been working on this recipe for several weeks, now.  Tweaking it here & there, until we finally came up with one that we both love!!  It has everything one looks for in a good southern potato salad, tangy from the mustard & the relish, a little bit of onion flavor & chopped up hard boiled eggs to give it just the right texture. The secret to making a quick & easy potato salad is....use a bag of frozen hash browns & boil them.  It's just cut russet potatoes that have been frozen so the work has been done for ya.  I wish I could take credit for the idea but all the thanks goes to Christy Jordan over at Southern Plate.  Thanks, Christy...we love ya!!!


Ingredients:
1 (24 oz) bag hash brown potatoes
4 hard boiled eggs, rough chopped
2 tsp yellow mustard
2 T dill relish
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 sour cream
3/4 cup onion, diced
1 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste (suggestion 1/2 tsp salt & 1/2 tsp white pepper)

In a dutch oven, bring water to boil, add potatoes and cook til fork tender.  It doesn't take long, mine were only in there about a minute.  Drain & let cool is a separate bowl.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Season to taste.  You can make this the day before and allow the flavor to marinate together overnight.


Big southern hugs,
