Picnic Potato Salad

My mom did not make potato salad, but I became totally obsessed with it, I loved it so much.

But it had to be simple, and basic. I found my recipe on a jar of Hellmans Real Mayonnaise, and I tweaked it until I got it just right.

As a result, I have been making this recipe "forever" and bring it to every party, BBQ, and affair I go to at the request of the hostess.

The best part about this recipe is I have added dill pickles, sweet pickle relish, sliced green olives, and pickled beets too. It still tastes delicious! The beets were a surprise hit!! Enjoy!
