We get a brand of potato salad in the grocery stores around here, from
time to time, called Mother's Potato Salad -- it's real good and I'd
like to be able to come as close as I can to making it... 

Has anyone got a potato salad that comes close?

How do we know if we can come close when we have never tasted it.
My family raves over potato salad when I make it but you probably
wouldnt like it because it has dill pickle, boiled eggs, potatoes,
mayo but NO,repeat, NO radishes in it.

Well of course potato salad would definitely contain potatoes... and don't
forget green bell pepper, carrot and parsley.

NO carrot, NO parsley, definitely celery, eggs, SWEET pickle,
potatoes, mayo, RADISHES, mustard, celery seed, green pepper if I have
some, a little vinegar, a little sugar, NO chopped onion but impart a
little flavor by putting a cut onion in the top of the finished dish
of potato salad and removing before eating.  ;-)  Let the fun begin.

  Why no make good homemade style,commercial brands are full of
preservatives.

Yes, this is why I'm looking to come close to the commercial version.

Preservatives can be a *good*  thing!
Without preservatives, food develops  "free radicals", which cause cancer.  
  Not everyone can walk out into a garden and pick vegetables.  So when buying
food, be grateful for preservatives.
