Recipe by Kendra

I keep this recipe in a bunch of my favorite hand-written recipes. It says it came from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, although I can't find it there now. In any event, this is the only way I fix potato salad. It has a more tangy flavor than most potato salads (even with no pickles!) and it's wonderful when served with anything barbequed. Cook time is cooking and chilling time.
