Momma's Potato Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Marsha D.

My mother used to make the best potato salad. Anytime we had a family gathering everyone requested she make her potato salad. Unfortunately I lost my mother before I could get her original recipe, but from experience of knowing the ingredients she used this recipe is the closest I have came. It's the same but not my mothers touch, as everyone would know a mother's touch is always the best. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

I follow this recipe exactly every time I make potato salad, it is so close to how mother made her's, but as you've said, it needs her touch.
