Potato Salad


Potato Salad

I made this for YEARS. I love potato salad. The one person who made potato salad better than anyone I have ever met, was Jane Magnuson. I asked her what her trick was, because I knew she had one. Cool Whip was her secret. So I adjusted my recipe to include Cool Whip. Thank-you, Grandma Jane! -Stacey
