One of the favorite side dishes at these events seems to be potato salad. There are many varieties of potato salad; however, besides the potatoes, they all have one thing in common: it is essential to keep any variety properly cooled at all times. No one wants to be remembered for poisoning everyone at an outing.

This particular recipe is for old-fashioned potato salad. Additional recipes will be shared soon, so stay tuned.
