Gandolfos Potato Salad

Total Time

This is the potato salad recipe that I am famous for. I named this recipe after a potato salad that I was trying to duplicate from Gandolfos Sandwich Shop where I live. However, as I was trying to duplicate the recipe, I came across a recipe from Southern Living that had similar ingredients and decided that the S.L. recipe was excellent if not better than Gandolfos-so I stuck with that. Everyone goes nuts over this and I give this recipe out all the time.

I've now made this with and without the bacon and also with onions or with scallions replacing the onions (because my BIL doesn't like onions). To my surprise I actually like it better without the bacon. With the scallions it was fine but lacked some bite. On the other hand with the onions it was fantastic!
