Country Potato Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Air Force Mama

Potatoes love to soak up all the mayonnaise, so if you noticed your salad is just a little dry when you are ready to serve, add a little more mayonnaise and chicken stock and it will restore the creaminess of your potato salad.

I thought this recipe produced a really nice classic potato salad. The dressing amounts were spot on and made the perfect amount for a good salad; not too sloppy nor too dry. After the potato salad chilled though I did miss the pickle relish and pimentos so stirred both in. Both are simply family preferences. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
