This recipe has always been a part of my family since I was a little kid. Every time there was a family gathering, my Grandma always made this potato salad. Oh, man, it was so good all the time! Everyone in the family knows how to make this salad but nothing compares to when Grandma makes it! Anyway, I have listed all the ingredients and directions so all you have to do is to follow them step by step and you are good to go! Feel free to add more ingredients if you prefer. Have a wonderful day, friends, and I hope you are all well today. Enjoy!
