Another recipe from my boyhood! My brothers and I would always ask for this when we had picnics or backyard barbecues.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This creamy potato salad will be a delicious addition to your summer BBQs. It's crunchy (thanks to the celery) and super creamy. Using dill pickle relish, rather than sweet relish, adds a little zing to the potato salad. If you like a lot of dill, you can even use more relish.
