Where I grew up, there was this great little German Deli that served the best, juiciest Pastrami Sandwiches. As a side dish, they always included their signature Shredded Potato Salad and a big, crunch dill pickle spear. Whenever I go back to visit, I always want to stop by to get my favorite sandwich and potato salad.
Last time I was there, I asked them what they put in their potato salad. They told me that it is just shredded hash browns, mayo, mustard and dill relish! That’s all! I was surprised at how simple the recipe was! I came home and re-created my own version. It tasted just like the yummy shredded potato salad from my favorite German deli!
By using shredded hash browns, you save time by not having to cook and shred the potatoes yourself. You just need to thaw them first!
Into a large bowl, place the contents of the bag of thawed of hash browns.
In a medium bowl, stir together the dressing ingredients:
2/3 c. Mayonnaise (give or take)
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons dill relish
Pour the dressing over the shredded hash browns and stir to coat. Chill several hours before serving.
