Best Potato Salad EVER (Southern Mississippi recipe)

For three wonderful years, I lived on what the southerners call the Redneck Riviera on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  It's a beautiful coast, and it's lined with old oak trees and a half a dozen tiny bedroom communities tucked back off the water.  The people who live there are rich in spirit and food traditions.  

My friends Tom and Russell shared this rockin' recipe for potato salad with me back in 2008.  Still to this day, it is THE BEST POTATO SALAD I'VE EVER ATE!  It's a whipped style potato salad, and it comes from Russell's mother Wulita who has now passed on.  But Wulita has left behind a southern Mississippi tradition that I will do my part to keep alive. So please feel free to share with your friends and enjoy at your 4th of July BBQ's.  





Wulita's Potato Salad

5 lbs. of potatoes 
7 hard boiled eggs
1 cup mayonnaise 
1/3 cup dill pickle relish 
heaping tbsp. yellow mustard 
1 bunch of green onions chopped
salt and pepper to taste 

Bring large pot of water to boil.  Once it reaches boiling point, salt the water heavily.  Peal the potatoes and chop into small pieces.  Boil until tender.  

Boil eggs until hard.  I start with a pan of cold water, place eggs inside, bring to a boil, and let the eggs boil for 5 minutes.  Then I take the eggs off the heat and them sit for 5 minutes.  Then peal them.  

After you peal the eggs, take one egg at a time and hold it in your hand.  Use a fork, hold the egg over a bowl, and mash the egg with the fork into your hand until it crumbles.  You could use the food processor for this as well, but I'm sharing with you the way Wulita's method.  

Mix everything together.  You can use a hand mixer to get the desired consistency.  Wulita used to leave it a little chunky for texture.  

Then Wulita would always top her famous potato salad with a bit of paprika for color!  

Serves a bunch!  Happy 4th of July!
