Cold Potato Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Carrie in Indiana

This is the second recipe that I adopted from the "'Zaar". This is your basic potato salad recipe and tastes like many you've had in your past. However, I will take the comments into consideration and perhaps tweek this recipe a bit! Cook time does not include marinating time.
