When I first met my husband, his mother was in charge of making the potato salad for family gatherings. Well, one year she wasn't able to make it and asked me to. I made this recipe up "on the fly" and everyone loved it ... more than my mother-in-laws ...LOL. I have made this many times and have even made it for large parties ... I just double or triple the recipe depending on the number of people. I hope you enjoy!!
