This potato salad truly is perfect! It combines everything we expect--soft, cool potatoes in creamy dressing--with flavorful surprises like sweetness from pickle relish and crispy bell pepper slices. Plus, it can be prepared up to a day in advance!



  1. Peel potatoes and chop into 1” cubes.
  2. Place potatoes in large pot of water, cover and boil for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when poked with a fork.
  3. Drain potatoes and allow to cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, celery, onion, relish, herbs, and spices.
  5. Add potatoes and mix well.
  6. Arrange greens on a serving platter, and top evenly with potato salad.
  7. Garnish with bell pepper slices and a sprinkling of paprika. Chill for at least 1 hour and serve.
