    75violets's Note:

    This recipe is right off the Hellman's mayonnaise jar. To me, it's so good it rivals my mother in law's potato salad, which I think is the best there is. It's a plain and simple potato salad, but it's delicious! Add pimentos, olives, or green peppers depending on what you like in your potato salad.

      I have been making this exact recipe for 25 years, we love it. Also, for 25 years I've reduced the salt to 1 tsp and sugar to 1/2 tsp. Usually I make this with apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar~~today I made it with white balsamic vinegar. OMG, I wish I'd been making it with white balsamic for 25 years.

      I don't think one should ever add ANY sugar and/or vinegar to this recipe. Excellent red (new) potatoes, fresh extra large hard boiled eggs, juicy sweet white onion and green celery with no strings attached, all seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper AND finished by stirring in to taste, Hellmann's mayonnaise, are all one needs to bring the "classic" taste of this fine potato salad to the folks one loves most! I've been doing it this way for 40 years or so, as my Mother and Grandmother have also, and I cannot tell you how many times I've shocked people by divulging the secret and simplicity of this recipe.

      I made this for the current PARTY game. I added mustard, sweet relish and a touch of garlic powder because that's just the way my family likes their potato salad. I kept out a bowl to taste before I did the adding and I thought it was great! Thanks for sharing a true keeper.
