“I've tried a lot of the potato salad recipes here at Recipezaar, but I keep coming back to my mother's recipe. It is simple, and it's the best. My father asks me to make it for him on a weekly basis, as my mother passed away years ago. I use Duke's or Hellman's mayonnaise for the best flavor. And I like to use the sweetest onion available so that it doesn't overpower the potatoes. Vidalias are the best when you can get them.”
