I never liked potato salad as a child...They either seemed too sweet or completely bland or worse yet, had some freaky ingredient that just didn't mesh well in the dish...Then one day I tried out a macaroni salad recipe that actually resulted in my creation of a potato salad with just the right balance of ingredients (go figure) and lightened a little by substituting in light mayo for the full fat version and leaving out the hard-boiled egg yolks using only the hard-boiled whites instead...Ever since then Ive eagerly awaited the warm weather months when I can make my potato salad...not only for myself, but for potlucks/cookouts, camping and for luncheons at work...I've even converted non-eaters of potato salad into eating my potato salad!
