My daughter came home one summer, and I asked her to make the potato salad. Her's was totally different from my version, and during dinner my husband remarked that he actually liked hers better than mine. Imagine that, I taught her how to cook and then she makes something better, than I make it, at least in my husbands eyes. Ever since that time, this is the only potato salad that I dare serve, so appropiately it is called Briana's Potato salad. She does not like onions or bell peppers or celery in potato salad, so it is no error that there are none listed here. Hope you like her version too.
