Labor Day Cookout Memories: "Grandma Cleva's Potato Salad"

Labor Day cookouts bring precious memories of my Grandma Cleva, who 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. 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 end of summer season finds you creating some treasured memories of your own with friends and loved ones!
