Classic potato salad

Grandma (my mom) always made it this way. It was the recipe often published in a Miracle Whip ad when she lived on Scottsdale Drive in west Knoxville. Back then, Family Circle magazine was popular and those ads appeared in ladies’ magazines such as that one.

I clipped the recipe from an ad and it is in a recipe binder we kept in our pantry. I always think of her and how she served it with her BBQ chicken when I see it. George got to have that chicken and we both loved it.
