I don't like just ANY potato salad. But there is a local BBQ restaurant that I, along with MANY others agree is THE BEST potato salad there is. In my opinion, this recipe is a close second, (or at least I like it almost as much.) When bringing this to a potluck event, I have been asked for the recipe and told it was the best potato salad they had ever had! It may not be the one for YOU, but YOU be the judge :)
