This is the same basic recipe my mom has always made. A lot of the measurements are guesses and should be added to taste. You can also add peppers, pickles, celery, etc. I made this in a small batch today, since it's just me. It's a good amount for one or two people to eat a few times. But it's easy enough to double or triple or....you get the idea. I love this because it's what I grew up on and I am not a celery fan and also find most commercial potato salad to be too bland or too sweet.
