Southern Fried Potato Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by little_wing

Just a twist on regular potato salad...frying the potatoes instead of boiling them. I know I should be ashamed of myself. Homemade fries are better (just chop potatoes and fry in whatever oil you have until crispy) but you can also use frozen. Also, you can peel the potatoes if you prefer.

Love it! But I used regular mustard instead, not a big Dijon mustard fan. Also didn't add red pepper flakes since I was taking it to a friends house & they don't like any form of HOT! But I will add it to it next time I make it for ourselves.
