This is from the Neelys on foodnetwork. This is a basic potato salad, one I've made often.....I thought it was my grandmother's recipe! I'll vary sweet or dill pickle relish, and sometimes add chopped radishes or diced red bell peppers. Unless my son is home, and then no peppers or radishes, just the basic recipe!
