Here is my mom's recipe for her potato salad! Handed down to each of her children and we all still make this the same exact way. Every party, get together or function, one of us are asked to bring the potato salad. You will love this. I promise. :)


  • 5 lb white potatoes
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup celery, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 1 large English cucumber, peeled, sliced and diced
  • 2 Tbsp dill relish
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise


  1. Boil whole potatoes with the skins on until fork tender, then chill.
  2. Boil eggs until hard, then chill.
