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)
mustard
chopped dill pickles
dill pickle juice  << she'd splash it in, mix taste splash... ack!
onions
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                    chopped onion
6-7 hard boiled eggs                salt and pepper to taste
3-4 sweet pickles                    1/4 c sweet pickle juice
1 tsp mustard                             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.
