This subject has probably been on here before. My mother made the best potato salad, but she has been gone since 1984. She used sweet pickles. My mother-in-law used to make very good potato salad & she used olives & it was delicious. She is still around, but too old to cook anymore. My wife refuses to make it. She is an excellent cook, but does not do potato salad. I plan to start making it myself. Done it a few times & something is missing. Any suggestions?
