“This is the potato salad I was raised on. Lots of eggs along with the sweet pickles gives the salad a taste similar to a good egg salad sandwich. I have adjusted the recipe slightly over the years to add color and more flavor. Adding the grated onion to the hot potatoes really lets the onion permeate the flavor of the potatoes. Cooking time is included in the preparation time.”
