My family loves mine. Use white nugget potatoes, cook whole and slice in half. At least 6 hard boiled eggs (for small salad) Green onion chopped to taste. Either mayonaise or miracle whip. Salt & pepper and either fresh or dried dill. Sometimes I add a bit of yellow mustard. Added zest you can use some sour cream with the mayo. Shred a bit of carrot for color. Let chill.

I always mix the mayo with dill pickle juice. It adds a nice bit of tang to potato salad.

Sometimes if my family has leftovers from a crawfish boil, they are added to the potato salad along with old bay or zattarain's seasoning, celery, pepper and onion. This is also good with shrimp, crab or other types of seafood.
