Grandma's Favorite Potato Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
I've never found a better potato salad recipe than this one handed down from my grandma. Like many grandmothers, mine cooked with a dash of this and a dash of that, so I estimated the measurements on this recipe. Feel free to change them according to taste, just like Grandma did! -Susan Plocher, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2011

"This is a very flavorful recipe. At first it seemed salty; but after I added the eggs and let it refridgerate for a couple hours, it was perfect! It got rave reviews from all who ate it at the BBQ. Highly recommend. Better than my old recipe by far."
