This sounds good to me, minus the garlic powder. It's important to add the other ingredients to the potatoes while they're still hot (as the video shows). That way, the potatoes absorb the flavors much better.

Love potato salad! I make mine the same as this EXCEPT (1) I prepare the potatoes the day before and chill. Day#2 is when they get chopped up. (2). Makes more sense to me to prepare the dressing separately (mustard, mayo, etc.), then pour it over the cut-up potatoes and mix.

So like my Mom's without mustard. I like this recipe but like a recipe without mayo better; like a vinegar/sugar/ oil mustard the German warm potato salad best. See recipes on line. Yum

I would just make three points: 1. Choose eggs that are two weeks old. It will make peeling the eggs much easier. 2. I think Idaho Baking potatoes work much better. 3. Use Hellman's real mayo, adds to texture.

Way too many chunky vegetables and potatoes too chunky for me. I like smooth potatoes. Also I add a dash of cayenne pepper for a little kick and since my hubby does not like the sweet relish. I use dill.

after hard boiling the eggs and cooling/or not, place in quart jar with 3/4 full water and lid and shake hard. The shells will slide off easily.

Before placing eggs in cold water to cool after boil. Gently break the shell all around the egg. I usually use the side of the kitchen sink to do this. Then place eggs in bowl of cold water to cool. After sitting in the water for 10 mins the water seeps in and loosens the shell so it can easily be removed without any chucks of egg coming with it. Great trick I learned from my grandmother. :)

I always use a spoon to peal an egg. Fast and effective. Hardly leaves any shell on the egg.
