I love potato salad. My ex-husband used to make the best. I couldn't copy his, but adapted this one adding lots of veggies. Be free to add or change veggies to what's in season.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We were pleasantly surprised by how much we loved this summer potato salad. When you hear loaded potato, you think bacon and cheese. But in this potato salad, loaded refers to veggies. Broccoli, carrots, and red and green pepper add beautiful color and a crunchy texture. Spicy brown mustard and hot sauce are mixed with the creamy mayonnaise to create a dressing that has a mild kick of flavor. If you like more spice, add more hot sauce. Cool and creamy, this homemade potato salad has the perfect balance of flavor and textures. A nice summer side dish for burgers, steaks, or hot dogs.
