Deli-Style Potato Salad

I was inspired by my grandmother to cook, and loved going to her house for Sunday dinner. She passed her cooking skills down, and today my mom and I still make this potato salad. —Sally L. Miner, El Mirage, Arizona

    This is a very good potato salad based on a dill pickle dressing. I had no problem with the dressing separating even after three days.

    I would actually rate this 3.5. The first day it was deliciious. However, after a day or two the pickle juice (vinegar) caused separation and the dressing became a little "loose". Would make it again but would omit the pickle juice.

    This is the recipe my grandmother used except for the radishes. Everyone puts in their own little addition. I'll try that. Looks good and pretty, too!

    We like a potato salad with a little zing so, borrowing a trick from Chef Alton Brown, as soon as my taters are drained I put them in the bowl I'll be using to mix the salad and toss them in about 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar. They will pull it inside as they cool and you get taters that have flavor all the way through.
