Potato Salad Surprise

Pat Duran


This is a great recipe ;I forgot about this one..I was talking to my mom on the phone and she mentioned she wished she had some of this salad she used to make when my sisters and I were young..She gave me the recipe over the phone...I made this for dinner today along with crock pot pulled chicken BBQ..that was awesome!....
This salad is great to serve with any BBQ,..hot dogs, burgers, brisket
Note; feel free to add a little of your favorites to the potato mixture, like celery, radish,onion,,etc
