Make this simple but delicious potato salad to serve with any main dish. Yum! It comes from my Mom’s kitchen and is one of my fall time favorites.
I struggle with side dishes. Am I alone or do you have the same issue? Other than salad or bread, I’m stumped for what side to pair with what dish. My Mom made a simple but super good potato salad growing up. It’s the one that I now make for my family. It’s usually in the summer to go to a barbecue or something like that.
With some pretty basic ingredients, you can put this recipe together quickly. The best is when you leave it in the fridge for a bit and it’s cold. Yum.
There’s no reason that you couldn’t make this potato salad throughout the year. But it’s especially delicious on a warm summer day. Bring it to a potluck, a neighborhood party, or family get together. Everyone will love it.

I love that the recipes that my Mom made and I loved, I am now making for my family. I’ve added some from Josh’s side too. Our kids kind of get the best of both worlds- some from my side, some from his side.
