"I hate to shoot this one down, but it's just a personal thing, I DON'T LIKE SWEET PICKLES!!!! With Dill Pickles this would rock! Oh! And for those onion hates out there, mom try shredding the onion gradually with a small cheese grater, the onion is un-identifiable and they'll never be able to point out or pick out the onions! I have friend that love my potatoe salad and they hate either yellow prepared mustard, or onions and I use both!!!"
