I can't believe it has taken me almost 4 years to update this Old-Fashioned Potato Salad post!! I have a list of behind-the-scenes things I need to do and I have a whole list of blog posts I want to update because the pictures are just so bad.

It's amazing the things you learn in 4 years!!

And let's be honest .... the things I continue to learn.

Simple is best when it comes to recipes like this Old-Fashioned Potato Salad! It tastes just like grandma made it!

I had this Old-Fashioned Potato Salad was near the top of my re-make list because it's a summer staple in our house and it totally reminds me of something my grandma would have made! Plus, with it being summer and all, what better time to re-share it?!

One of my favorite things about summer is all of the yummy food! No surprise there! :) We cookout almost every weekend, and often throughout the week. Because of all of these cookouts, we have quite an array of side dishes we enjoy. One of my favorites is this Old-Fashioned Potato Salad - which is kind of funny because of how much I hated potato salad as a kid!

Yeah, I was that kid ......

Now, I'll gladly take a spoonful of potato salad - and I'm more than happy to share it with friends and family! This is a no-frills, classic, old-fashioned potato salad! Your whole family is going to love it!

Creamy Pea Salad - This salad is a nice change from the typical potato or pasta salads. It requires very little cooking and a little bit of chopping - it could easily be a no cook recipe if you buy precooked bacon! It doesn't get much easier than that!

  16. I always add a bit of sugar to balance the vinegar. If you use miracle whip the sugar is in that. I use Hellmans. Pa Dutch way!!
