MOTHER made this tasty salad for our Thanksgiving or Christmas diners. But it's so good I make it often during the year. It's an ideal accompaniment for whatever main dish we have for dinner. When served as an individual salad on a lettuce leaf, it's very attractive. —Nellie Dulin Concord, North Carolina


  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 cup diced cooked salad potatoes
