    Cabin Cat's Note:

    So many potato salad recipes try to make themselves better by adding unusual ingredients. I can guarantee those will be the ones still sitting on the table after the picnic is over. This recipe came from my Grandma who was born in the late 1800's and it's the only one we keep coming back to!

      This recipe is almost exactly the same as the one my mom, and now the rest of the family, make. Cabin Cat, you are right, this potatoe salad disappears at gatherings so fast it is amazing. This is the ONLY potatoe salad!

      Being from central Pa with alot of Amish and Mennonites, the recipe was simplicity in motion and very good. Did use bacon as suggested and, my own preference was to add a little vinegar. Next time I make it, going to eliminate bacon and my vinegar add on, and use Pa Dutch Hot bacon dressing. Agree with cabin cat -- the KISS principal is the best.
