For over 30 years now, my grandma and grandpa have been bringing this totally amazing potato salad to most family events and parties. We all LOVE it. Usually we eat this large batch, but, if on a rare occasion there are any left-overs they are soon divvied up and taken home. All crowds love my grandma's potato salad.
