Classic Potato Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by joan in CNY

This has been a family favorite for years. I am always told for a family picnic "bring your potato salad!" I think it originated from a Hellmann's ad but I only use Kraft mayo.

Dear Joan in CNY: I made your potato salad and it was very good! My husband especially liked it. Your ingredients measured out nicely. The flavors blended well also. I did not substitue anything, but followed the recipe exactly and I would make this potato salad again. I did not give it the highest rating, as I still remember that PS in the 70's that was still the best I have ever had, but yours sure ranks up there! Thanks!
