- Eggs: Boil eggs to perfection with my Instant Pot Boiled Eggs. Be sure to mash the egg yolks. The egg yolks and the mayonnaise is what makes this salad creamy.
- Red Potatoes: Peeling the red potatoes – run cold water over the potatoes once they come out of the boiling water. Then peel away the peel with your hands. You can leave the potato skins on. I prefer the skins removed.
- Green Onions
- Sweet Pickle Relish
- Yellow Mustard
- Ground Black Pepper
Serve salad cold.
