MY DADDY'S POTATO SALAD

I THINK WHAT I REMEMBER MOST ABOUT THIS POTATO SALAD IS DADDY MIXING UP THE DRESSING IN A JAR. HE NEVER MEASURED ANY OF THE INGREDIENTS. I DON'T EITHER WHEN I MAKE IT. EVERY TIME A COOK-OUT HAPPENS I MAKE THIS AND I FEEL SO HAPPY THINKING AT THE MANY TIMES I WATCHED HIM MAKE IT OVER THE YEARS. HE PASSED AWAY IN 2001 OF LIVER CANCER AND OUR GET TOGETHER'S HAVE NEVER BEEN THE SAME. SOMETHING IS MISSING AND THAT IS MY DADDY.
