So to go along with all those great grilling recipes that I posted in May and June, here is another side dish.

One of my most favorite side dishes of all time are mashed potatoes and of course in the summertime, we eat a lot of potato salad.  Did you know that some people make a mashed potato salad?  Believe it or not, here is the recipe.

3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 hard boiled egg, sliced for garnish
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/2 cup sweet pickles, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sweet pickle juice
1 teaspoon yellow mustard

Place potatoes in a large pot of cold water; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.  Drain and transfer potatoes to a large bowl.

Mash potatoes with a potatoe masher.  Stir in onion, eggs, celery, pickles, salt and pepper.  Mix mayonnaise, pickle juice and mustard in a seperate bowl; pour over potatoes and mix well.
