Peel and chop the eggs while still warm.

Add to the warm eggs to the dressing

While the potatoes are still hot, peel by hand under running cold water

Several people lost their sanity while trying to get the secrets of The Best Potato Salad Ever out of my mother. I was able to do it by giving her liquor. And now, I share the her years of expertise as a cooking teacher gone bad, with you. And, it's just in time for a summer picnic or a wake.

I am absolutely lovin your recipes and comments. I am so glad that you joined BakeSpace.
