A long-time-ago friend of mine made the most *scrumptious* potato salad. I don't know where she is anymore so I can't ask her for her recipe (I don't think she had one anyway...... she was one of those people who estimated everything).

I'm abysmally untalented at recreating recipes and estimating *anything*, and I've searched high and low for it............. so I'm hoping someone here can help me out

I know pretty much what the ingredients were. It's the proportions I'm needing help on:

potatoes (duh)
chopped dill pickles
dill pickle juice << she'd splash it in, mix taste splash... ack!
boiled eggs
mayonnaise << not much though it seemed.

and what order would I mix them in? if any.

does anything seem to be missing?

Any help at all would be INCREDIBLY appreciated! I MISS that potato salad.

You might try this one; just substitute the dill pickles for the sweet pickle in this recipe. I don't usually go by a recipe either...but this one is a good one.

Potato Salad

6-8 med potatoes
6-7 hard boiled eggs
3-4 sweet pickles
1 tsp mustard
chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c sweet pickle juice
miracle whip or mayonnaise

Peel and cube potatoes. Peel and chop eggs. Add cut up pickles and jar of pimentos. Mix together and add salt and pepper while mixing. Pour sweet pickle juice over mixture. Stir in enough Miracle whip or mayonnaise to make a moist potato salad.

Once you get your ingredients chosen, you might also pay attention to various types of potatoes. Find your favorite. For a bold new taste, try Yukon Gold, which have a bold, buttery taste which I love.
