Recently while I was at a party, I had mashed potato salad. It was delicious. The potatoes weren't completely mashed, but had chunky pieces in it. There were diced onions, red bell peppers, and hard boiled eggs in the salad. Those are the only ingredients that I recognized.

I don't think it had mayonnaise in it, but I'm not sure. The potato salad looked plain except for the red pepper, but it was so good. It was not store bought, but homemade.

I asked for the recipe but the person who made it didn't seem like she wanted to share it. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I would appreciate it if someone would share this recipe. Thank you.

Growing up, my Mom always made mashed potato salad and it does have mayonnaise in it. It's actually pretty much the same as chunk potato salad but using cold mashed potatoes. We always put diced pickles (your choice of sweet or dill or both), chopped onion, pieces of pimento and sliced olives if you like....oh yes and a little mustard mixed in with the mayo....stir, chill and serve.

Got some leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge? Add one raw egg per serving, stir it up, and microwave about 1:20 per egg (the time will depend on your microwave - stir at least once per minute of cook time).

Add one teaspoon of sweet relish and one tablespoon of mayonnaise or salad dressing per serving and mix it up.

Quick and easy!
