My grandmother makes a killer potato salad. And like all self-respecting grandmothers out there, it has no recipe.
I picked her brain for the ingredients and gave it a whirl.
Red potatoes, hard boiled eggs, sweet pickles, bell pepper, salt, pepper, and the tiniest bit of mayonnaise.
I’m terrible at following directions, so of course I used a different type of pickle and I don’t believe in peeling potatoes, so they have skin. It turned out pretty well, but definitely not quite right.
Why does that always happen? I can’t duplicate my mom’s spaghetti sauce, either.
There must be a secret ingredient.
