Red Skin Potato Salad

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by French Lavender

This is from "Donna" at the All Recipes web site. This is my FAVORITE potato salad. If you do not care for the tangy mustard flavor of regular potato salad, give this one a try. It is creamy, with the taste of bacon, celery, and some onion. It does have eggs, so it's not a "leave it out all day at a picnic" salad.

"Thank you French Lavender, for this delicious potato salad. My guests were going in for seconds and thirds. Although I put in 1/2 a cup of fat free Greek yoghurt and reduced on the mayonnaise. This will be my future receip for holidays and special occasions."
