Recipe by Dawna Riedle

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 offer these suggestions: Put the salt on the potatoes while they are still warm. Add some pickle juice or white vinegar to give it a twang. Also chopped celery is good in it. And some celery salt or celery seed. Paprika on top or olives if you like them.
