Mashed Potato Salad

Mashed Potato Salad


"My mother used to make this on Easter to go with our ham and she used to make it for our get togethers whenever we were having a lot of company. We also like it at room temperature. Just do not leave it out any longer then you would regular potato salad. Served warm, it goes great with ham or fried chicken."

It was the BEST potato salad that I have ever made. I didn't mash the potatos completely, I only "smashed" them. The instructions are correct when they say that it tastes great at room tempera...

My family loved this recipe-it was a great sidedish to serve with BBQ chicken and steaks.

Pretty good--but I thought it was too mustard-y--my finished result look very green. I think next time I'll cut the mustard by half and up the mayo and sour cream.

VERY GOOD! Even anti-potato salad people would like this ( boyfriend!). We ALL enjoyed this recipe! I decreased the mustard to 1/4 cup and omitted the pickles. Very good! Very colorful!...
