Cajun Potato Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by gaylasikes

This is a dish that I have tweeked over a few years. It was taught to me by my mother so the recipe was always "a little of this and a little of that." It is always changing according to how much of each ingredient I have on hand. By boiling to potatoes with the skins on, the flavor is a lot better.

Love this recipe, only one I'll ever use for potato salad!! I like to boil my potatoes in a little crab boil or use the left over potatoes from a crawfish boil for extra kick. A scoop of this dropped in a bowl of gumbo is like heaven! Thanks!
