Mom's Best Potato Salad

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Paula

This recipe was shared with me by my mom. This is THE BEST potato salad I have ever had! Whenever we have family get-togethers, I always ask my mom to bring this salad! The vegetables add such a nice refreshing crunch. My mom also likes to add 1/4 cup diced green pepper and 1/4 cup diced cucumber, but I prefer it without.

Nice recipe! Exactly what I was looking for. Added 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp parsley & 1 tsp mustard. The colors of the radish and carrots made it look just like it tasted- GREAT!
