RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is a recipe from Southern Living but came to me through the Foods teacher at the high school were I work. Her advanced Foods class makes the staff lunch twice a year and this was from one of their meals. They do a great job! I don't like normal mustard potato salad but I love this one!
