Experience the taste of the South with our timeless Classic Southern Potato Salad. Let's dive into this beloved recipe!
In a large pot, boil the diced potatoes until fork-tender. Drain and let them cool to room temperature.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooled diced potatoes, chopped hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped celery, finely chopped red onion, and sweet pickle relish.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yellow mustard, white vinegar, sugar, salt, and black pepper to create the dressing.
Pour the dressing over the potato mixture. Gently fold everything together until the potatoes are evenly coated.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate the potato salad for at least 2 hours or overnight. This allows the flavors to meld.
When serving, sprinkle the top with paprika for a pop of color and extra flavor.
