Great Grandma’s Potato Salad

Great Grandmas Potato Salad via LashesandDashesWe are having friends over tonight for a cook out and my Mom asked if  I would make my Great Grandma’s Potato Salad.  This recipe has been in our family for years. The only thing my Mom changed with the recipe is,  she does not add celery & carrots, but you could if you like a little extra crunch.  This is my Dad’s favorite and he requests it quite often,  Mom always makes it for his Birthday and Father’s Day! Always make the salad in a bigger bowl then you think you need. The salad also tastes better after it sits in the fridge for a day.
