This is my mom's potato salad recipe, which I just love. I haven't seen one here exactly like it. It uses italian dressing to give it flavor, and doesn't have pickles or mustard. The key to an excellent final product is letting the Italian dressing sit for a couple of hours and soak up the flavors before adding the mayo. My favorite dressing to use is the kind you make yourself from a package, adding oil, water and vinegar - just be sure you've made it up ahead of time so it is full of flavor by the time you need it. Cooking time is marinating time.
