    Caroline Cooks's Note:

    Spring and Summer--Mom would make this for BBQs. Really very pretty, if you mold in bowl, unmold on lettuce leaves, and grate the cooked egg yolks over the top. Passive work time = must chill refrigeration; can be made ahead.

      Although I really like chunky potato salad better, this was a nice change from the usual. I made half a recipe, as I am by myself and didn't want to be eating potato salad more than twice in the next few days. I made the salad in the morning and let it sit in the fridge all day. The flavors were really good. I really liked it! I put it in a med. size glass bowl, sprayed with PAM, so that I could remove it and plate it, to take pictures. It came right out of the bowl after sliding a knife around the edge. I am going to try this recipe using cut potatoes. I topped the molded salad with crumbled egg yolk, and chopped green olives and pimento. Made a pretty presentation. Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe with us Caroline!

      pretty good, I added a little sugar. I am trying so hard to find a mashed potato salad recipe close to a local caterer's. Hers is sweet but not too sweet -less celery.
