Patio Potato Salad

 Patio Potato Salad
A sweet and creamy cooked dressing lends old-fashioned goodness to this side dish that goes well with any entree. Since the flavors need time to blend, this is a nice make-ahead salad for family barbecues, potlucks and picnice. -Romaine Wetzel, Ronks, Pennsylvnia
