Okay I got some chicken breast, egg (do you put those?), celery (not really sure), onion, mayo, salt and pepper... Do you put pickles? Let me know some of your yummy potato salad recipes.

my wife uses baby potatoes and just cut into half so it is in bite sizes already, she also pour half a can of evaporated milk on the potatoes before putting mayonnaise. well of course it depends on how many your potatoes are. she said the milks purpose so that the potato will absorb the milk and not the mayonnaise. she put crushed bacon too, fry the bacon first. she does not put pickles and does not put egg. she puts cheese and sometimes small cuts of apples and pineapple tidbits. of course chicken.

Hi friend, I make three types of potato salad. I have many people with different needs so when I have them for lunch or diner and I have a potato salad I make what they like. You have had a recipe here for the potato salad I like best. Ihas mayo, and dill pickles. I never put celery because I feel there´s too great a difference between the celery´s crunchyness and the softness of the potato, the eggs and the mayo dressing. Some of the people I love don´t like dill pickles so I boil peas and carrots (I dice them finelly later) and toss them with mayo. My yongest grandson won´t eat any of those because he doesn´t like mayo. Good for him, because he was found to have his cholesterol a little bit high. Fot him I cut cut up the potatoes while stil warm and put some olive oil. Then I chop parsley and toss it in with more oil, salt to taste and lemon juice. This last salad is very good for overweight people. I hope this helps.
