My recipe is just a simple one. I don't really have approximations so I usually end up with a different amount every time.

Yukon potatoes, peeled and cut roughly
a few hard boiled eggs
hellmann's mayo
green onions
paprika
celery
salt and pepper
mustard
fresh dill

My family loves this one, and I stole it from Emeril Lagasse's website:
Emeril’s Potato salad:

6 eggs
3# new potatoes
½ lb. bacon, cut in small pieces
¾ C mayonnaise
¼ C Creole or whole grain mustard
3 TBS fresh lemon juice
1 ts hot sauce
¾ C finely chopped red onions
½ C green onions-green part only
1 TBS chopped garlic
½ ts black pepper

Cook eggs, quarter spuds and boil until fork-tender, about 12 minutes. Fry bacon and cool. Combine mayo, mustard, lemon juice, red and gren onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Blend and then add eggs, potatoes, bacon.

Potato salad is so invidividual and forgiving, too...pretty hard to mess up.

There's always Hellman's Original Potato Salad. It's always a hit.

I have to have sweet pickle relish, a small bit of chopped onion and another bit of minced celery in mine, along with Miracle Whip, S&P, mustard and several chopped hard-boiled eggs.
Bacon or cheese is always welcome, but we seldom use it.

By the way, while all the ingredients work together, the sweet pickle relish is key. Please make it the night before and let it set in the fridge. That gives the flavors time to marry, and it tastes so much better. (The same is true of pasta salad.)

My husband makes a mashed potato salad that is to die for! It's just potatoes (boiled, peeled and rough chopped) rough mashed with butter, mayo, yellow mustard, sweet relish and sugar. It really is wonderful.

rasolis is an eastern european style potato salad, ideally made with red skin potatoes. it requires sour cream, hard boiled eggs, diced beets, dill pickles, ham (or spam), kipper snacks, and dill. i've always had to set aside a small bowl of this potato salad w/o the herring too, for the you-know whos in most groups. never had a miss with this one--never enough though.
