This is the potato salad that my mom has been making for years- and is my favorite by far! I substitute diced cucumber for the celery (not sure if it's in the original recipe or not, but it is on the handwritten copy I have) and it is the part that just makes it for me! And judging from the comments I get every time I make this for guests, it is often the part that sets this potato salad apart for everyone else too.

Very delicious. This recipe is similar to the recipe I prepare for my family. I have always liked celery seeds in my potatoe salad. I halved the recipe since it was made for just my DH and myself. Prepared for the January 2008 Photo Swap.
