Wow, that person peeling the potatoes in the video needs to use a potato peeler. He/she wasted a lot....I like more seasonings like some garlic powder, seasoning salt, dash of black pepper, tsp of yellow mustard, sugar, couple tablespoons of ranch dressing.

If eggs are hard to peel use a teaspoon back of it facing you peels eggs so fast

I omit the pickles and add 1 cup chopped celery instead and add about 1/4 vinegar or pickle juice.I add all ingredients together while warm and also garnish the top with deviled eggs, a little dried parley or fresh and paprika as a garnish. Mom's Old Fashioned Potato Salad.
