The first dish I learned to make from my mother is potato salad. It was a hit and I have been making it ever since. I made it for my girlfriend when she invited her boyfriend to dinner and they ended up married. I made it for my co-workers at a potluck and they are still raving about it. I do like other's potato salad but mine has a little kick my mother taught me about.
