Dill Pickle Potato Salad

Dill pickles add pizzazz to this old-fashioned chilled salad. The creamy, well-dressed side dish makes a flavorful and attractive addition to a Fourth of July picnic or church supper.—Nancy Holland, Morgan Hill, California

    The potato salad tasted ok but I think it was more work than what it was worth. I think store boughten potato salad has better flavor. I will probably check out another recipe in the future.

    It's like Mom's. The only difference is that Mom put grated cheese. I added 3 or 4 oz. and it tasted like I remembered. Thanks a bunch.
