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.

"The title of the recipe says it all: This is a version of the potato salad I remember eating as a child. I like the addition of the hard-cooked eggs, although you could leave them out, and the salad would taste just as good. If you like a creamier potato salad, you can increase the amount of mayonnaise used to 1 cup."
