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.

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!

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!!,

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.
