    BriarCraft's Note:

    I'm usually not brand loyal, but Best Foods (Hellman's) mayonnaise really does make a difference with this recipe. If you must substitute, please avoid Miracle Whip, because it just doesn't taste right. This recipe was created by my mother in 1957.

      Good overall, but alot of people thought that is was purchased and it did taste a lot like supermarket potato salad, even with the peppers.

      We loved this! I cut the portions back since there are only 2 of us. I have never added pimiento, or green pepper to my potato salad before, but we really enjoyed these additions. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      I scaled the recipe down to 5 small potatoes, used about 1/8-1/4 cup brine and about 8 dill pickle chips, diced small, 2 scallions, fresh red bell pepper instead of pimiento, a tsp. of mustard, and about 1/3 cup mayo. Delicious!
