Carol's Potato Salad

My MIL makes the best Potato Salad.  Anytime we had a gathering and she offered to bring something, she was asked to bring the Potato Salad.

Potato Salad
She was gracious enough to share the recipe with me many years ago, and I've been making it her way ever since.
I never, ever mess with the basic recipe, never.
The only thing I change about it, I will make it with onions or without. 
Either way, equally tasty.
Mine never tastes as good as hers, but then again, she's been making it her way for over 60 years, and I figure she's had a little practice. 

I made it last week to accompany a ham I cooked.  We had friends in for dinner and I didn't want to fuss too much, so it was a simple dinner, but we enjoyed.

Recipe:
10 red potatoes, cooked til done, diced
6 eggs, hard cooked and diced
5 slices Mt. Olive Dill Pickle Sandwich Slices, diced
Set aside to cool to lukewarm.
Opt: 1/2 chopped sweet onion
Opt: Paprika to sprinkle on top
Sauce
1 cup Miracle Whip

2 tablespoons pickle juice
4 tablespoons milk (plus more if desired)
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
Whisk the Miracle Whip, pickle juice, milk and mustard together, pour over the diced potatoes, eggs and pickles. 
Sauce over Potato Salad
Mix together gently, and place in the fridge to get acquainted.
Take out and serve and accept the compliments, graciously.

I used to make this for the Senior Center lunches when I cooked there and it was always well received.
