This is a family favorite and is always requested for a gathering. Very easy to prepare; lots of flavor. You can add a small amount of finely diced onion and/ or egg if you like, but this is just how we enjoy it. Serving size is based on 4 oz per person.

This was awesome!!! So easy to make and so dang YUMMY!! I did halve the recipe as I didn't need the full 20 servings, and I also used 1/2 c mustard and 1/2 c we like mustardy potato salad. But other than that, I made it exactly as written and will make again and again!!! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe, TDC and congrats on winning the football pool!
