I don't measure...so I am going to give you a very basic quick salad.
boil 4 or 5 medium potatoes....maybe 6 in skins until cooked, test with thin fork,..cool in cold water and dry & peel off skins, when cooled off cut into cubes.............and into a big bowl. chop up fine, a cup or so of celery and 1/4 cup of your favorite onion real fine.....into a smaller bowl do 1/2 cup of mayo....add about 1 teasp salt and dash of pepper......about 1 tablespoon white vinegar.....1 teasp sugar..............mix well.....taste with a separate spoon................if it is too thick I add a tablespoon of water.......when the potatoes are very cool add the mix to the potatoes....stir     add fresh parsley...if no fresh use dried....about 1 to 2 tablespoons...............stir again and put into fridge to cool off & set up.......if you like cooked eggs you can use 4 or 5 cooked and sliced on top....taste again before serving cold
things that you could add......relish or chopped pickles....chopped bacon....chopped olives....and some times it will thicken up....use a little water...not much just a little at a time.............if you want to make it look fancy use a bowl line with washed lettuce pieces....put your potato salad inside the center and slice some tomatoes around the side and cut your hard boiled eggs sliced on put on top of the tomatoes and serve cold with fancy crackers.
