  • This is a good basic recipe. My family and I prefer adding chopped green onions, a little mustard and parsley. Also, when I get creative, I also add sliced black olives. As for the questions about the pickles, use some ingenuity.

  • This really is a very good, easy, quick recipe. No need for salt, or garlic, because the pickles already have those spices. It really is easy, good and just yummy. Now I think we all add our own touches or tweaks to recipes, but come on now, this is a very good recipe.

  • What about the 32 oz. jar of dill pickles??? Are they supposed to be chopped upand added to the potatoes? And where is the onion? All the recipes I have for potato salad call for minced onion. Don't think I would care for this recipe.

  • I usually add some chopped celery and onions. If I get real creative, I might add some canned mushrooms and sliced green olives.
