My grandma makes the best potato salad, but she doesn't use a recipe! So I watched while she put together "a little of this and a little of that" and jotted a recipe that comes close. The creamy dressing also works well for making deviled eggs.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2013

I use this recipe whenever I make potato salad. I use regular Idaho potatoes with the skin on, and it always turns out fantastic. The key is to let it sit in the refrig so that the flavors marry. Tastes best the next day, but sometimes I just can't wait!

This has become my go to recipe for potato salad. I made this over the holiday and everyone loved it! The flavors are wonderful. I even used low fat mayo and low fat sour cream and it was perfect.

I doubled the recipe on this one and used a dozen eggs. It was one of the most delicious potato salads I have ever eaten!
