I got this recipe from my Mother-in-law. This is by far the best potato salad I've ever had! I believe she got it from a very good family friend. This is always a staple at any summertime gathering. It goes fast! Times are approximate.

Lovely salad ! I halved the amount and especially loved the crunch of the celery - great addition !

This potato salad would be the highlight of any meal. Totally and absolutely fabulous. I halved the recipe and had to substitute the dill pickle relish for zucchini relish as I couldn't find a dill pickle relish in any of the local supermarkets. I don't think this small change had any substantial effect on the final result. Thank you so much for posting your MIL's recipe Chef. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap 39, April 2010.
