Classic Potato Salad

Rob and I love potato salad. It is an easy side dish to make, its inexpensive, and goes with just about everything. We usually pair it with hot dogs or hamburgers. There are many recipes out there for potato salad and everyone seems to have their own way to make potato salad. I wanted to post this recipe on a day that I really wanted to celebrate summer and today seemed like a great day. Enjoy!
