My late father used to make this all the time when we were growing up. It's so refreshing in the summer time when it's too hot out. I had been craving it this past couple of months and decided to make it, my husband had it for the first time today and he's hooked! This is an Irish Potato Salad. It's amazing the next day after all the spices and meat mix and set, Best served the next day in my opinion. Hope you give this salad a chance, you wont regret it. Enjoy!
