Potato Salad...our way

Here's how to make our version of potato salad:
Peel, wash, dice and boil approx. 9-10 potatoes.
While the potatoes cook, dice:
1 red onion
1 very large pickle
2 stalks of celery
3 cloves garlic

In a very large measuring cup, prepare these:
approx. 1 cup egg-free mayonnaise 
1/4 cup pickle water (the brine from it) or Italian vinaigrette 
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1-2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning or Lawry's
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar

When the potatoes are finished, pour them into a sieve. Cool them by running cold water over them until they are cold. Then, place them in a medium to large serving bowl. Mash them slightly with a fork, then add the onion, pickle, celery and garlic. Stir all these together, then add the dressing mixture. Whip together thoroughly.
You will want it to have a full taste, slightly tangy, but full flavor. Add an extra amount of something if it tastes not quite right. Enjoy!
