Simple Cooking - Granny's Potato Salad

4 medium potatoes
1/2 stick butter, melted
3 heaping dinner tablespoons of mayonnaise
3 tablespoons Dill pickle relish
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 oz pimentos

Peel and cube potatoes and place in boiling water until softened (NOT mushy--you will have mashed potato salad if you wait too long). While boiling, sprinkle a generous amount of salt in the pot. After draining potatoes and allowing to cool for a few minutes, pour butter over potatoes. Mix together with hands or large spoon. Add mayo, relish, onion and pimentos and mix well. Here comes the tricky part: the mustard. My original recipe calls for "5 continuous seconds squirting mustard," however my dad and I have found that it's best to just gradually add the mustard as you go. Add some, stir, taste and add more as needed. Remember: you can always add, but you can't take away. Chill in refrigerator or serve warm--however you like it!
