    Yum, your recipe sounds delicious, I have a family friend that adds stuffed green olives to their potato salad. It’s great to try a new potato salad each get together

      I put cut up green olives in my potato salad and I also use the spicy brown mustard instead.

        Although I really enjoy my favorite potato salad, it’s always fun to try different ingredients and trying something new

    to make this BETTER– after boiling the potatoes, and draining, pour about 1/4 c pickle juice over the HOT potatoes. allow to soak in till potatoes are cooled, then proceed as directed above.
