The Original Potato Salad Recipe

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Big Daddys Cookin

I found this on the back of a Hellmanns Mayonnaise jar. The only thing I changed was I added dill pickle to the recipe. This recipe is easy, quick and always a hit at parties.

Very tasty! I omitted the pickles as that was something my mom used to add in for dad all the time when I was young and I did not like it then. Plus my kids are not fans of pickles either and I wanted them to eat it. We normally use Miracle Whip on our potato salad so this was a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing!
