Recipe Corner: "Aim to Please Potato Salad"

My Grandma Cleva would dazzle with her potato salad everywhere from potlucks to picnics. Exploring the ins and outs of everything potato salad was a fun kitchen adventure for me. This is my take on her potato salad recipe. Maybe you will take this recipe and embark on your own kitchen adventure and share it with your family or loved ones at a gathering. Most of all, I hope this Easter season finds you creating some treasured memories of your own with friends and loved ones!
