Potato Salad II

Made  times

"This is a good potato salad recipe for us folks who don't like onions. I really wanted to try a potato salad recipe, and they ALL had onion of some sort. By not putting any, I'd lose half the taste. Well, this may seem a silly recipe to some of you, but I love it and so does my brother!"

I make a very similar type of potato salad. To add a little more flavor, I add bacon bits to mine. I despise onions, so I know I miss out on a lot of flavors in various recipes. But this is a...

Yay, no onions! Glad there are more out there like me who hate potato salad most of the time because of the little onion surprises in it. I do agree with those who prefer mayo and add hard boile...

I grew uo on this. My grandmother added hard boiled eggs, bacon, and celery. Also she used 1/2 helmans and 1/2 miracle whip. On the top paprika sprinkled on it adds a nice flavor.

This is how I end up making my potato salad also, except I add pickle relish to add a bit of flavor. I also add hard boiled eggs and cheddar cheese.
