Baked Potato Salad Recipe

Baked Potato Salad Recipe

I was tired of the ordinary potato salads served so often in summer, so I came up with this hearty flavorful variation. My family has enjoyed it now for several years, and I'm asked to make it whenever there's a get-together or cookout. I'm sure you'll like it as much as we do. -Barbara O'Kane, Greenwood Lake, New York
