Hey everyone-

Anyone have a recipe for the classic DELI style potato salad (mayo base, not mustard base)....

Thanks in advance!

Boil,peel and cut into 1/2" cubes, l gallon potatoes
Boil,peel and mash by hand into 1/2" cubes another gallon of potatoes
Add 4C chopped onion
Add 6C sweet relish,drained
Sprinkle with 3TBS of salt
(I think you will find salad dressing to give a better flavor than mayo but that is your choice)
Add salad dressing(should take about 1/2 gallon) but don't add all at once or it may be to wet.
Add egg shade(yellow food color) as necessary for a pleasing color(usually about 1TBS)
I like to mix it all togather and store in gallon glass jars for a couple of days to let the flavors come togather. When you mash the second gallon of potatoes by hand it gives the overall dish a nice creamy texture
