"Old School" Yellow Mustard Potato Salad - 52 Church PotLuck Side Dishes

Pin It Now!

I spent quite a bit of time this summer with my Mother-in-Law in a little town in South Dakota.  When you look up a definition of "Old School" cook in the dictionary, chances are you would see an image of her.

She raised three girls (one perfectly) in a little town with limited access to the new fangled ingredients we take for granted today.  Whatever she made was generally simple, seasonal, and delicious.  Also a tad repetitive.  This is one of those repetitive recipes.

When she thinks potato salad, this is pretty much all that she thinks of.  Yellow mustard and Mayo, pickle relish and taters.  I added the red spices just for a little extra flavor, color and to look good in the photos.  The rest is just as she made it, liked it and raised those girls on for the best part of a hundred years.

No Church Social, big family gathering, potluck or cook out would be complete without this dish.

Thanks Marie... ENJOY!
