South of the Border Potato Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by jonesies

A potato salad with a Mexican twist. Taken from "The Complete Family Cook Book". I've added some time to the cooking time to boil the potatoes and eggs.

Awesome combination of flavors, textures and colors! I used black olives. I added a little extra onion, too. I opted to use the mayonnaise and garnished with some cilantro. Yummm! This is a great salad for picnics because it's more exciting and has more eye appeal than ordinary potato salad. I'll certainly be making this again. Thanx!
