Potato Salad

40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
12 ingredients
6 servings
I have been making this for years. It is just another potato salad, but I need to post it for posterity. I hope you like it. The ingredients below are what are coming out of my head as I never measure exactly, just approximately (at least in this one). I always used to put onions, green peppers, etc. in my salad, but through the years my husband, and my kids, and my grandkids all started liking or not liking different things in it--I like it all. So I decided to do a basic potato salad with olives (which everyone likes), and lay the rest of the stuff on top of it in a covered container. That way if someone wants onion, they take a piece; and if they want green pepper, they may also take it. That way I keep everyone happy--which is pretty hard to do (smile). This works out better when I take it to a supper at church because there are a lot of people who don't like onion and pepper. This way they can have the salad only and the ones who want the rest may have it. Now that I've written my novel, I'll quit.
