    1. 1
      Bring whole potatoes to a boil in a large covered pan. Boil for 25 minutes.
    2. 2
      Drain potatoes well and peel while still warm.
    3. 3
      Quarter and dice potatoes (I dice mine a little larger then what I'd like because they break down a bit in the mixing and become the perfect size)
    4. 4
      Add potatoes to large salad bowl.
    5. 5
      Add diced celery, onion and dill pickle.
    6. 6
      Combine mayonnaise through salt in a small mixing bowl to make the perfect potato salad dressing.
    7. 7
      Stir the dressing into the potato mixture.
    8. 8
      Add chopped eggs.
    9. 9
      Stir well.
    10. 10
      Cover potato salad and place in the refrigerator for a good hour to allow the potatoes to meld with the flavors of the other ingredients. It will be worth the wait!

      I haven't put pickles in my potato salad for years. I swapped it out for bacon once and never went back, but we really enjoyed them again with this recipe. I guessed on the mayo and got a little too much for my taste, but I'll just be more careful next time. :) I did love how quickly this recipe came together and I was able to do it easily on a weeknight. Thanks for sharing, good2bdunn! Made & enjoyed for Pick-A-Chef Spring 2011. You've been adopted! :)
