Mmm Monday ~ Great Picnic Recipe ~ Original Potato Salad with Mayonnaise


Mayonnaise Potato Salad

My husband absolutely LOVES potato salad made with mayonnaise only, but around here, it only seems that the mustard variety can be found.  With the great Spring weather upon us and summer just around the corner, I thought I'd include this recipe for today's Mmm Monday especially for my husband and other mayonnaise potato salad lovers like him.
