Hellmann's the Original Potato Salad

"A longtime favorite of my family. We don't have an outdoor summer gathering without this and Hellmann's Classic Pasta Salad. Can't go wrong with these delicious recipes. FYI: because of the mayo content, we put the bowl of salad into a slightly larger-sized bowl filled halfway with ice to keep the salads cold and fresh."

    Granny makes this for holidays and gave me her recipe but could not give me any measurements because shes old school and just throws it together. This one seemed the closest to hers and it worked out great for me so I had something to go off of measurement wise! Granny adds mustard, bacon, dill relish, paprika, and green olives.

    My mother made this potato salad when I was growing up. I never knew the source of the recipe until years later when I discovered it on a jar of Best Foods mayonnaise. The only tweaks she made were that she left out the vinegar and added sweet pickles. This is my all time favorite potato salad. Nothing else compares.

    I have been making this for years & my Mom before me. Usually will leave out the vinegar. I have added fresh parsley, dill, red bell pepper. People who have asked for the recipe are surprised at how basic it is.
