YeYe's Sweet Hot Potato Salad

Michelle Worthy


I grew up in the South where potato salad was always a side dish no matter what the family gathering. The thing is, there are so many ways to make it and not all are pleasing to everyone's palate. Over the years my three children expressed their likes and dislikes, especially when it came to potato salad. So with that in mind, I was able to come up with this very tasty and flavorful recipe. It was a big hit on Labor's Day with everyone. All three kids loved it and hopefully you will too! Enjoy!!!
