I'd like to take credit for the potato salad recipe that I have enjoyed all my life, but it is actually my Mom's. And probably her mom's. Neither are around to make it anymore so it's good that I learned how to make it. I have tweaked it over the years but it's still basically the same.

Cooked Russett potatoes (peeling optional) diced
hard cooked eggs diced
chopped dill pickles
pimentos
chopped bacon(one of the tweaks)
mayonnaise
vinegar, cider or white
balsamic vinegar(another tweak)
salt
pepper
onion powder
garlic powder
dried parsley
dill weed(tweak 3)

Notice I don't show amounts of any ingreds. cause I don't know. It's all to taste.

Tator salad looks great and the tweaks kinda add a little something to it. Tweaks are good. Lots and lots of tweaks :msn-wink:
