Potatoes, chopped hard boiled eggs, salt & pepper, and Miracle Whip. Don't like Miracle Whip for anything other than potato salad and egg salad sandwiches. Yum.

My dad made the good old fashioned potato salad with onions, celery, pickles some dry mustard, hard boiled eggs and mayo type. Really good stuff. I was pretty sure it was the best ever...til my wife dropped this on me!
2 lbs. red potatoes
1 Tbsp. PLUS 2 tsp. Kosher salt, divided
1-1/4 cups Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
6 green onions (green and pale green part), thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions:

Cover potatoes with water in 4-quart saucepot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon salt. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain and cool slightly. Slice into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
Combine Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, vinegar, jalapeno peppers, salt and black pepper in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients and toss gently. Season, if desired, with additional salt and pepper. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

In my old age I've found that I'm far less biased regarding potato salad and can pretty much enjoy most all potato salads...........Like tacos...they're all different and good in there own way..........But this is my favorite potato salad now.

I use my Mom's recipe for Potato Salad. It's not totally "traditional", but all the family loved it. She very seldom "measured" when she cooked. She peeled and boiled potatoes. When they were "done", she drained them really well....then mashed them. Then she added some boiled eggs, chopped; a small amount of diced onion; sweet pickles that she chopped herself (she never used relish because she said it was "sticky": some chopped pimento; then mayo,a "tad" of mustard, salt, pepper to taste. Along with her potato salad, she made wonderful chicken salad and Thanksgiving dressing. Thank Goodness I watched her through the years and finally wrote down her "recipes".
