    LOGMAN's Note:

    This is a basic Alabamian potato salad that has tested the time for many important holidays. Easy and tastes awesome, especially on the 2nd day when all the flavors mix. Can be served cold or hot (first day).

      I make my potato salad very similar to this one. I love the addition of dill pickles rather than the sweet relish that are in so many recipes. I did put the eggs in my salad using 6 altogether. I don't like big chunks in mine, so I mash them with a fork then use my fingers to make sure they are really mashed good. I used 6 lg. potatoes too. I added a little more mayonnaise to suit my taste, as it didn't seem to have quite enough. Good to the last bite!
