Quick & Easy Potato Salad

On occasion I get a crazy, uncontrollable craving for a certain food. Most of the time it's peanut butter, chocolate, and pumpkin... but this time it was something a little bit more savoury vs. sweet. Potato salad. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I certainly don't eat potato salad very often. It usually finds it's way into family potlucks, holiday get togethers, and bbq's with friends - it's not something I whip up on a regular basis.... and I am not sure why, because it is delicious!

This easy recipe can easily be adapted to fit your tastes... I love dill, so I added a lot of dill. I also like egg in my potato salad so I added some hard boiled eggs. Onions? You bet! Even a sprinkle of paprika made it's way in... it's simple and versatile.

    oh my- yum!! This is so up my alley. You know what is weird? I have never thought to ever make Potato Salad from scratch. I should keep this in my back pocket (as a dill lover as well!)

    This looks yum and I love the composition of your pics!
