Picnic Food: June Potato Salad recipe

I really love potato salad, it’s the perfect side dish for anything you can throw on the grill. There really isn’t a way to make bad ptotao salad — make it from a recipe, make your Grandma’s version or throw together whatever’s in the fridge and it almost always turns out great.

This simple homestyle potato salad is one of my favorite versions.

I was inspired to make it when I saw a jar of Kraft “Homestyle” rich & creamy mayo at the store the other day. This Mayo really makes the dish, I’ve never noticed it before so I’m not sure if it’s new or not? It’s super easy and it tastes good. Perfect for my hubby for Father’s Day :).

    I’ve never been a big fan of potato salad. My mom always made it two ways, “German” with lots of vinegar and regular with lots of mustard … two ingredients I just can’t stomach.
