Simple but Wonderful Classic Potato Salad
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)

4-6 servings
I'm pretty particular about what I like, so I took my favorites from different Potato Salad recipes and played around until I came up with my own perfect version. Like most salad recipes, it's open to interpretation and is easily adaptable to your own likes. This makes enough for 4-6 servings as a side dish. If you're making for a pot luck or larger gathering, you will probably want to double it. This can be made vegan easily using Veganaise or similar. I'm a fan of real mayo but I have family members who aren't, so I've made it both ways and it translates well.
