Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm sure this is good, but you can't compare to my Texas/Southern version. I make it with mayo, yellow mustard, chopped dill pickles, chopped eggs, chopped onion, cubed cooked potatoes, pinch of sugar, salt and pepper. If you put 1/4 teaspoon of salt in the potato water while boiling you won't have to add any more since the mustard is salty. Again I'm not putting this potato salad down, we just don't care for several of the ingredients, and I get raves on my country version.

That sounds like a good recipe grannyjean! I like dill pickles in my macaroni salad, so why not in potato salad?
