This recipe is my mom's. It's a family favorite and I'm looking foward to it when i get back to the states. Make as little or as much as needed. Great for cookouts, with BBQ, or whenever. Takes about one hour including cooking time.

I had been searching for a good simple recipe for potato salad and I hit the jackpot on this one!!! I followed the recipe (just cut it down for smaller serving size) and omitted the onion and boy was it a huge success!

I have made this same recipe for years,,, but I boil my potatoes in their skin,, much, much easier to dice up,,, also, I believe the potatoes have a better flavor.
