As far as I am concerned, there are 2 types of potato salad, picnic-style and german-style. Neither is better than the other. They both have their applications.

What you will need

2 lb Russet Potatoes

3 Eggs

2 oz. Dill Pickles

5 oz. Pitted Black Olives

1/2 cup Mayonnaise

2 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
