NOTES : This is the ultimate classic potato salad  recipe.  I've used it for years, having finally found the perfect combination. All my friends love this so much I have to double the recipe whenever I have a BBQ. I've added radishes, red pepper and even olives for a little something different from time to time, but usually I stick to the basic recipe.  Enjoy!
