"This was a great. I didn't have sweet relish so added dill relish and a teaspoon of horseradish. I also mixed in the eggs. Even those who don't care for potato salad raved about it."

"The way my mom always made it with the exception of twice as many boiled eggs and dill relish. Made it tonight her way and it was fabulous. Thanks for reminding me that Southern is the best Potato Salad!"
