Old-Fashioned Potato Salad

THE SECRET to the fine taste of this salad results from adding the warm potatoes to the mayonnaise mixture. My Grandma Nellie may have created the recipe herself or brought it with her from Ireland. I recall friends and family often preferred a second helping of potato salad instead of dessert! —Mary Elizabeth Martucci South Bend, Indiana
