Best Potato Salad

Recipe by BriarCraft

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.
