Pat McBride’s Simple & Tasty Potato Salad

Potato salad

Potato salads are as unique as the person making them. Some people use pickles, peas, bacon or what ever else they might find in the refrigerator. Of all the potato salads I have tried, Pat McBride’s, my mother-in-law, is the best! I’ll bet I make this dish a dozen times or more each year.


Step One

Boil three and half pounds of potatoes until cooked. Pat preferred red potatoes, I prefer Yukon Gold Potatoes. Hard Boil a dozen eggs.
