    This is pretty much the same as the one I grew up with and still make, except I add pickle relish. I've always loved potato salad. - 6/30/13

    Very good potato salad. We don't eat a lot of potatoes in our house, but potato salad is one of the few things that, when we have it, it has to be just right. This is one recipe that meets expectations of 'just right'. - 11/4/11
