Grated Potato Salad

Mom's creamy combination of chopped hard-cooked eggs and grated potatoes is both smooth and chunky. The dressing coats the salad nicely. -Brenda Beachy Belvidere, Tennessee

    This was very good. I now make it using frozen shredded potatoes. I steam them right in the bag, by poking holes in it and cooking until they are hot. Way easier! I also add onions! We love onions!

    This potato salad is delicious. It is on the sweet side, but I like that. I didn't grate the potatoes, but diced them into small pieces. Excellent!

    This made at every family gathering, and someone always asks me for the recipe.

    Just wondering how others cook the potatoes and if they let them cool before grating.

    My family loves this recipe. My husband says there is no need to make a meat dish since this is all we really want anyway.
