Grandma Brown’s AMAZING Potato Salad

Grandma Brown’s AMAZING Potato Salad

When I was growing up my grandma used to cook and bake all of the time.  I was the baker in the family along with Grandma.  Besides baking she had other fantastic dishes that we all loved! Before she passed away, she hand wrote her recipes for me and I am going to share them with you.  Some of them are left up for interpretation so I will do my best.  This one especially since there are really no measurements. But it is so simple and easy!
