Southern Potato Salad

When I first married my husband 23 some years ago I was not aware that there wa such a thing as southern potato salad. Then my mother-in-law schooled me and now I make nothing but this recipe that is a family favorite of my husband’s. ┬áIt’s perfect for a Sunday afternoon lunch or picnic.
