Grandma Gertrude’s Delicious Potato Salad

Potato salad with tomatoes from the garden

Yummy Potato Salad with Garden Fresh Tomatoes

Potato salad was always on the menu for the potluck table at Grieb family get-togethers, and at every family barbeque. The big yellow pyrex bowl filled to the top with goodness was loved by all. Aunt Ida always made a second bowl of the salad so no one went without; even with a second bowl leftovers were seldom.
