MIL’s Potato Salad

My Mother in law made her potato salad a few weeks ago for a BBQ when my Dad & brother were in town, and everyone (myself included) loved it. When we had our Housewarming / Surprise Gender Reveal Party on Saturday, I made sure I got the recipe from her to make it for our guests. Needless to say, it was a hit!

The key is to stir all of the ingredients together while the potatoes are still warm/hot . . . something I never did before and it makes such a difference. Happy BBQ – ing!
