Classic Potato Salad
A classic potato salad recipe, for those who like to stay basic with their spuds. This recipe will make you nostalgic for those long 4th of July weekends from when you were a kid!
When cooking potatoes, cook until slightly harder than normal for mashing so they do not disintegrate in the salad. Also, feel free to add in extras like green onion, peas, cheese chunks, chicken, etc. This makes for a heartier salad.
