Laura’s Potato Salad

Potato salad is an American classic in my book. Over the years, I was never really happy with the potato salad recipe I had. It never tasted like my mom’s when I made it. Then one day, I decided to try one that I saw on a television show. I thought it was good, but not quite good enough.

So, I made some changes and ended up with the perfect salad. I now love to make potato salad. The recipe is the perfect size for my family of five. There is usually even a little bit leftover. This is a recipe I’ll definitely pass on to my kids.
