Aunt Kathy's French Potato Salad

Nancy R


My Aunt Kathy is a great cook and this is her version of potato salad. No yellow mustard, eggs or pickle relish. Much more elegant option. She serves it at ladies luncheons and family gatherings. There is never any left.
I am asked to bring this to most BBQ's.

I added crisp bacon to it for a twist.
