Mom used to make this potato salad without a recipe. When I got married, she and I made it one afternoon and wrote down the ingredients so I could make it at home. Of course, we used our famous Idaho potatoes.


  • 4 pounds potatoes, cooked and peeled
  • 3/4 cup sliced peeled cucumber
  • 2 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons chopped dill pickle
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dill pickle juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 3/4 cup sliced radishes


  1. Cut potatoes into 1/4-in. thick slices; place in a large bowl. Add cucumber, eggs, onions and pickle.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, pickle juice and mustard; pour over potato mixture and toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate. Fold in radishes just before serving.
