I Know most people have potato salad in the summer time, but my Mom would always have it on her Christmas Eve buffet. She would have cold cuts, crusty rolls, baked beans, Christmas cookies, and home made peanut brittle.
We all looked forward to the potato salad becauce it had been months since we had it, and it went so well with the buffet
I simply cannot stand potato salad with mustard (southern style) or made with miracle whip. Guess it's what you grew up with.
