Good Ole American Potato Salad

Good Ole American Potato Salad

I got inspired this 4th of July to make a good ole American potato salad as part of the day’s festivities. It’s so easy to make with fresh ingredients rather than buying the pre-made grocery store stuff. The original inspiration came from my mother-in-law’s recipe. The recipe below yields about 8 -10 servings.

It's nice to know what goes into your potato salad.
