Hellmans Potato Salad

I have been online at the Hellman's website trying to find their original potato salad recipe to no avail . Does anyone out there have it? It has always been on the mayonaisse jar, but isn't there now. Would appreciate any help.
Thanks.

Potato salad makes me think of summer. I would have never thought to add vinegar or sugar to my potato salad. I will have to give it a try sometime.

I have been making potato salad for years using vinegar, sugar, mustard,sweet pickle relish and miraclewhip.You can make it as sweet or tart as you like. Makes a wonderful dressing for potato salad.

I do think that Hellmans is the best mayonnaise for potato salad, hands down. I've tried Kraft, but not nearly as rich tasting. Anyhow, I do not add vinegar, but do add lemon juice. No sugar. I also had fresh green pepper finely chopped and/or cut in rings as a garnish on top. Chopped hard boiled eggs are also a good addition, in case that was left off the recipe. I can't re-read it while replying, so I'm not sure.

Maybe that is why we prefer Duke's. It is made with cider vinegar.

sierra, when I make potato salad, I do as my dh aunt showed me and he adored her salad..After cutting up the cooked potatoes she would coat them with evoo and red wine vinegar, I do the same before adding anything else..It helps cut down on the amount of mayo and I do add a little sugar to mine...We love it this way oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, mayo, red onion minced, dill pickles chopped fresh chopped parsley, hard cooked eggs..I sometimes add crisp cooked and crumbled bacon to the salad
