This a good recipe, one that is familiar to most of us. I have learned that whether it is potato or pasta salad, a small amount of olive oil mixed into the salad before mayo, etc. makes a more moist salad without having to add extra mayo before serving. It should not be mushy or floating in dressing which is often the result of adding too much.
Picnic Potato Salad
You'll find a version of this hearty salad everywhere from backyard cookouts to bereavement platters. Add a sprinkling of cooked and crumbled bacon just before serving to put it over the top.
