Awesome Potato Salad

Doreen Fish


With the snow melting and the days staying light longer,my mind is drifting to BBQ's ,family get togethers on the patio, the smell of charcoal, mouth watering steaks lathered with sauce, chilled wine and cold potato salad!!

This is an awesome salad and one I found in Company's Coming back in the 80's. A favorite with the whole family and I get requests to make this every BBQ get together.
Hope you all enjoy.
