Hellmann's the Original Potato Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by aHardDaysNight

A longtime favorite of my family. We don't have an outdoor summer gathering without this and Hellmann's Classic Pasta Salad. Can't go wrong with these delicious recipes. FYI: because of the mayo content, we put the bowl of salad into a slightly larger-sized bowl filled halfway with ice to keep the salads cold and fresh.

This is the same recipe my family has made for as long as I can remember. (I'm 77) Love it! We like to use White Rose potatoes, boiled, cooled, then skinned. Good with skins on too. I sometimes use dill pickle juice for the vinegar. Have never written it down, so great to see it posted.
