Frozen hash browns pare down prep time for this quick mayonnaise potato salad from Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. "It's so easy to make in a hurry because you don't have to peel any potatoes," she notes.
You may never go back to "plain" potato salad once you've tried this recipe—I haven't! Dublin Potato Salad goes great with lots of different foods as a side dish. But it's also hearty enough to be a meal in itself. When there's time, I prepare it ahead and let the flavors blend. —Kathy Scott, Lingle, Wyoming
You'll find that this dish is very versatile—more special than everyday but easy enough to make anytime.
Sweet potatoes aren't as popular here in New England as in some parts of the country. I had a friend from Maryland many years ago, however, and we enjoyed swapping recipes. This one's a combination of hers and one I already had in my file.
Meet the Cook: With six grown daughters who visit us frequently, I have plenty of chances to serve this family favorite - whether we are making steaks, pork chops, burgers or bratwurst. I've even served it with more formal ham dinners. The recipe comes from my mom, who was a cook at local restaurants and resorts.
Here on the tree farm my husband and I run, we also grow potatoes. They are a staple that's always as close as my root cellar when I prepare this dish.

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law and I've made it numerous times at the request of friends and co-workers. It's quick and easy, just what I need in my busy life. I learned how to cook from the two best cooks I know - my mom, Arline, and my Grandma Etta. —Ginger Cusano, Sandusky, Ohio
When I became a widower, I took to heart the challenge of learning to cook just for myself. I now have a growing collection of wonderful single-serving recipes. This potato salad is delicious and a snap to prepare for even the newest cook.—Ray Klinge, Tulsa, Oklahoma
This old-fashioned potato salad recipe doesn't have many ingredients, so it isn't as colorful as many that you find nowadays. But Mama made it the way her mother did, and that's the way I still make it today. Try it and see if it isn't one of the best-tasting potato salads you have ever eaten! —Sandra Anderson, New York, New York
