Potato Salad Made Easy And Done Just Right
I have more than a few fond memories of eating Mother’s homemade potato salad with a nice plate of barbecued baby back ribs and baked beans. Though I have come across many varieties of potato salad in my time, yet for that comforting, at-home flavor, I find myself drifting back to the classic Southern version of it that Mother made so well. Though she had to allow for time for the flavors in the salad to settle after making it, I always loved her version far better than the usual store-bought options (which often made use of far too much mustard relative to the other ingredients).
This recipe captures the spirit of what she made from memory so well, I think. This Classic Southern Potato Salad is just the right sort of side for your family barbecue or for a much larger cookout or tailgate. It has a great flavor and isn’t too difficult to make, either.
