American Potato Salad | Quick Salads


Growing up, I always came home to delicious food every day. My mom will always be the best cook to me.. I admit during my teenage years, I was quite fussy with food.. I had a lot of things that I didn’t appreciate as much as I do now.  She always seemed to have time to fix me something that I liked. On the occasion that she would not be home when I came home, she would leave me something in the fridge. I would cleanup and hurry to find out what was in there for me. Cold Potato Salad was one of my favorites. I could have this just on its own or with some of her yummy chicken. This salad is a great side any day! Filling you up well till your next meal.
