Hash Browns Potato Salad

"My family would rather have their potato salad made this way than any other and it's so easy I sure don't mind. I can't remember where I learned this but I've been doing it this way for years. No peeling, chopping, boiling, etc. Except for the potatoes I'm just making a guess on the amounts listed. I never measure but I had to put in something to get the recipe posted."

    I had never made potato salad before because I was too lazy to do all the work. When I saw this recipe I just had to try it. I loved the ease of the recipe but this turned out just OK for us. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was on the dry side. I ate it but everyone else tried it but said they didn't care for it.

    Brilliant concept! I also used my usual recipe, merely substituting the hash browns for the tedious peeling, boiling, chopping of fresh potatoes. I've passed this idea along to others who also love it!

    Loved the ease of this potato salad. You can fix it anyway you want your salad- but starting with frozen hashbrowns?? GENIUS!!!

    My family usually uses these same ingredients for our potato salad, but the frozen hash browns are a new touch. I love the ease of it. I used to hate making potato salad because of how involved it was. I'll definitely be making it a lot more often now using your method. Thanks for posting!!
