Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

In observance of the Holiday I wanted to share something with you, something from my heart. I am a pretty good cook and this recipe is special. It was composed long ago when I was working for Coldwell Banker in Roseville. I spent 5 or 6 years there before moving onto another Brokerage and had a blast. What a great group of people and we all worked so well together. We used to have so much fun at our get togethers. We had a Potluck at "Hidden Valley Lake" where we were living out in Granite Bay. There was a Contest for the best Potato Salad.  My sister and I (who was working with me when I first began my career), Well Kathy and I decided that we would put our heads together and win this contest!  And that we did.  =)  Although my sister passed away later that year from Breast Cancer, this recipe always brings great memories.  So from Kathy and I, I would like to share with you our "1st PRIZE WINNING POTATO SALAD" Recipe. 
I hope you and your family enjoy it! It's really the best!!

Big Hugs and Happy Memorial Day~  LESLIE  =)

~Best Potato Salad Recipe~ 

1 Pot of cooked Idaho Potatoes ( 10-12)
8-10 Hard Boiled Eggs, Peeled & chopped
1-2 cups Mayo, Best Foods brand
2-3 cups Celery, sliced about 1/4" thick
1/4 cup onion, (can use purple or yellow)
4-8 Dill Pickles, chopped
1 can sliced Black Olives
1 Tablespoon Mustard
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1-2 Tablespoons Wine Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Lawrys Garlic Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper

Combine all above ingredients and let stand at least 2 hours before serving so flavors have a chance to intensify. This recipe is prepared to taste so you need to adjust according to your own likings, add or subtract as your family prefers. You may even want to include some of the Potato Peels, I do like some in mine sometimes. I have sometimes used New Potatoes, but be aware they do not adsorb the same, so you would need to adjust the recipe. I like it best with Idaho Potatoes instead. 

Bon Appetit!
