It’s BBQ/Cookout/Picnic season and Potato Salad is almost ALWAYS on the menu when we’re hosting or visiting one. With the quantity I need to feed my crew, homemade is always the most economical way for us to go 🙂 I usually triple/quadruple my recipes now that all three of my boys are in high school (and athletes).
