Potato Salad

I feel like I’ve been making potato salad forever! After all, its the one of those basic foods  you think of for summertime entertaining, no matter where you live. Everyone has their favorite recipe. I’ve tried quite a few such as, French style with Dijon mustard and herbs, which is delicious and Italian style with Italian dressing, which is also delicious. But I like plain mayonnaise based potato salad the best. To me, its as American as the Fourth of July!
