I've been assigned potato salad for a 4th of July bbq. I rarely make it myself as my immediate family won't eat it. So sometimes I just buy a little container and that's ok, but I wanted to make it this time. When I've made it in the past I just tried to do my Mom's recipe from memory. She never measured, but I know what she used. It comes out ok, but not great. If you go to enough trouble to maker it from scratch, don't you think it should be great? The main thing was that my Mom used miracle whip and I don't think I want that. I'd like to try something else. I figured I'd get some great ideas here. Anyone want to share their secret ingredients? Thanks!
