Whatcha doing for Memorial Day? I hope you are having a picnic so you can make my potato salad..The World’s BEST potato salad. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill. But I tell you, this potato salad makes me very very happy.
One of my sisters besties, Faith, once made some potato salad and it was rockin’. I asked her what she did and she said she boiled the potatoes with chicken bouillon cubes. What a great idea. Soooo, I stole her idea and made some tater salad of my own.
I will tell you this is pretty garlic-y, so if you do not like garlic, you might want to reduce the amount of garlic. I love it just the way it is. Also, you can make this a few days ahead of time, all of the flavors make happy food love and glorious things happen.
