Homemade Potato Salad Recipe

MY BEST recipes are from friends and family. This one came from my aunt - I learned to cook by watching and helping her. I have so many family favorites that I created my own cookbook. I print it out, illustrate and annotate it to give new brides. It is always well received and treasured. -Patty Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
