Another recipe from my boyhood! My brothers and I would always ask for this when we had picnics or backyard barbecues.

This is THE potato salad for the dill pickle fan! Not only had I never tried preparing potato salad this way before, but I'd never even heard of it! What a pleasant surprise! The dill adds a freshness to the dish that the crew and I really loved. Pick up some dill pickle relish the next time you're at the store (right next to the sweet relish) and give this one a try.
