    This recipe is alot like my mother-in-laws recipe which I learned many, many years ago. She taught me a great potato salad has as many eggs in it as potatoes. If you're making 6 potatoes put 7 eggs. It makes it really creamy and a fuller flavor. I also always use onion. I also put a little sweet pickle juice in it along with the mustard and mayo. Great recipe. I always get alot of compliments and there's never any left. Thank you mama!

    I made this for Memorial Day weekend a couple of months ago. It was excellent - just what I thought potato salad should taste like. I prefer skins on my potatoes, so I left them on. I grated the eggs, but I think next time, I'll just use the egg slicer. I used more eggs than the recipe called for (I think 6), and it was delicious. I also added garlic and onion powder to give it a little more kick.

    Try adding a dash or two of cayenne pepper for a really good kick!!

    Just made this recipe!! Wonderful taste and texture for basics. Mine was so light. Can't wait to add more variations. I used Hellman's mayonaise and 5 eggs. I will enjoy making potatoe salad from now on. Can't say enough about it!!

    I would use this recipe almost to a T except I was taught a long time ago that the trick to great potato salad is to add 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp. of durkee's dressing & 1 tbsp. of yellow mustard, 6 eggs + 2 egg whites (roughly chopped) & 2 egg yokes (mixed with the mayo and mustard mixture)-all hard-cooked. I always add celery, onion, & 1/3 cup diced dill hamburger pickles. I've had people rave over this recipe.

    Turned out really good. Of course I added the relish and onions and celery. I didn't have brown mustard so I used yellow and used season salt and black pepper mayo. Everybody enjoyed it!!,
