Good base recipe for simple potato salad. I wanted mine with mostly potato, so I used 6 fairly large red-skinned potatoes, and two hard boiled eggs, and reduced the onion to 1/3 of a cup. I don't like raw celery, so I skipped it, and increased the amount of celery salt to about a teaspoon, and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt, so it wouldn't be way too salty. I added about 1/4 cup of halved green olives, with pimentos, and separated the pimentos from the olives. I don't care for pickle relish, so I used a tablespoon of fresh snipped dill weed, and a teaspoon of sugar. It seemed like it would be dry with just 1/4 cup of mayo, so I upped it to 1/2 cup. and added 2 tablespoons of sour cream to make it a little creamier and less dry, and I thought that was the perfect amount. Finally I added a couple of shakes of paprika when I added in the black pepper. I liked everything about my version except the green olives. I think next time I will just get a jar of pimentos and add more of them without the olives. Make sure to give it several hours to chill. My fiance and I both thought it tasted better a day after being cooked, after all the flavors had time to blend together
