Not My Momma's Potato Salad

Carol White


There is no picnic with out Potato Salad. So get out the chicken, hot dogs and ribs and serve my potato salad as a great side dish. Coming up in a large family, I thought my Mom's potato salad was the best I ever ate. It was always consider as a special side dish for us. Mayo, onions, celery, sweet pickle relish and lot's of hard boiled eggs. Today I am sharing my version of a great potato salad with a healthier twist.
