With the summer coming to an end I had to make potato salad at least one more time. This is a simple recipe with not a lot of prep time. However the longer you let it cool in the fridge the better the flavors will blend. Served with BBQ chicken or pork ribs fresh off the grill -what a great summertime meal.
