The Original Potato Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by 75violets

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.
