The ingredients for the dressing are one tablespoon of prepared mustard, ground black pepper to taste, and 1/4 cup of mayonnaise.
Boil a large pot of water with salt and cook the potatoes in it for about 15 minutes. After removing them from the boiling water, peel and chop the potatoes into small squares. Next, place the eggs in a saucepan with cold water. Bring the eggs to a boil, then remove the saucepan from the heat, allowing the eggs to remain in the hot water for 12 additional minutes. Remove the eggs from the water, peel and chop.
Next, put the potatoes, eggs, celery, onion, relish, garlic salt, celery salt, mustard, pepper and mayonnaise all into a large bowl. Mix these ingredients together well using a fork or spoon. Finally, place the bowl with the mixed ingredients in the refrigerator until the potato salad is chilled.
