This recipe is loosely based on a McCall’s recipe. One day I was in a hurry so I “winged” the recipe to suit the time for the salad to be done. I was surprised that it turned it so good; it was a hit with my family. So this is how I make my potato salad now.

Note: I accidentally bought a 5# bag of mini red potatoes from Wal-Mart. I didn't know mini red potatoes even existed! Anyway, for this recipe, should you be using the mini red potatoes, I suggest using the entire bag, which amounts to 15 potatoes total.
