Growing up, my mom brought this potato salad to nearly every potluck. It was legendary. It was requested over and over. It is still my favorite! This recipe fits conveniently in a large, washed out ice cream bucket making for easy transport.
10 med. potatoes - boiled, peeled, cut into large chunks
9 hard boiled eggs, chopped
an entire jar of pickles, coarsely chop the pickles, reserve the juice
1 coarsely chopped onion (a yummy vidalia would make it extra delicious!)
1 lb. pkg. of bacon, cooked and crumbled
(Mom would use bacon bits and if I'm in a huge hurry, I'll substitute the real bacon bits, but that gets expensive!)
Combine all of the ingredients, dressing with mayo and pickle juice until you get the consistency you like. I like to finish it off with a little bit of cracked pepper on top. The pickle juice is what makes it so fabulous, so be generous on that one!
