Crowd-Pleasing Potato Salad

Crowd-Pleasing Potato Salad

For over 30 years my grandma and grandpa have been bringing this totally-amazing-potato-salad to most family events and parties. We all LOVE it. Usually we eat the large batch she always makes, but if on a rare occasion there are any left-overs, they are soon divvied up and taken home. All crowds love my grandma’s potato salad.

She is so generous to give her recipe to anyone who asks and told me I could put it on my blog. It is fairly easy to make. If you dice everything while the potatoes are boiling it doesn’t take too long to make a very large quantity either. This would be great for potlucks, parties, or anytime you need to contribute to feed a crowd.

  1. How cool! I hope that one day I can pass on recipes! My husband’s grandma is a super good cook, so everyone always eats everything she makes. It’s fun getting to live close to them because we never go hungry at her house!
