The late, great culinary genius James Beard once labeled this particular recipe as his favorite potato salad. It was a "secret" family recipe of a lady whom he had encountered along his endless gastronomical sojourns -- and, after much prodding by Beard, one of the family members finally elected to let the rest of the world enjoy it too. This potato salad falls into an old fashioned (but good!) category by utilizing a type of "boiled dressing". Often, such dishes were served hot (like German potato salad) but I like this one because it is served cold, which is my personal preference. I decided to save the recipe here so that I wouldn't lose it.
