Family Secret Potato Salad

This potato salad is somewhat of a family secret. At least I am convinced it MUST be my family secret because I always get talked or conned into making it. Just me ... So, now I'm spreading it to the masses so everyone can enjoy some of my homemade family secret potato salad.

Whatcha Need:
5 lbs. russet potatoes (chopped, boiled, and cooled)
8 hard boiled eggs, roughly chopped
1 C. mayonaisse (+ a little extra if you'd like)
1 T. yellow mustard
8 oz. full fat sour cream
4.25 oz. chopped black olives
just shy of 10 oz. dill relish
1 medium sized red onion, diced fine
salt and pepper to taste

Let's Get To Spreading the Family Secret!

First off, we just want to dump all of the ingredients except the mayo and mustard into a big ol' bowl.

Now, here is where you create your own family secrets. Do you like mustardy potato salad? Add more mustard. I only use 1 T. but we don't like mustardy potato salad. And, add your mayo now. I start out with one cup.

Get to mixing. This is where it starts to look like a hot mess and you freak out that maybe you added too many ingredients. Worry not, weary one.

It's just not fattening enough. We need more mayo. Momma says so! I added about a tablespoon here and it did the trick.

Ta da! It's done and it's beautiful! YUMMMMY! Now, I made this huge bowl of potato salad for 2 kiddos and 6 adults. We cleared out the whole bowl over the course of dinner and late night snacks. It's THAT good. Yum.
