Poor Man's Potato Salad

 Poor Man's Potato Salad
As a young college student, I was usually pretty broke...but that didn't stop me from eating well! My dear grandmother taught me this simple recipe because it was easy to prepare and the ingredients didn't cost much. These days my budget doesn't have to stretch quite so far, but I still keep the recipe in my files. Poor Man's Potato Salad serves two nicely, and complements many meals.
