Potato Salad/Macaroni Salad/Deviled Eggs

potato saladThis recipe comes from my dad’s side of the family, in fact the bowl in the photo above used to belong to my great aunt, and I call it the potato salad bowl.  This is a staple at BBQs, and is occasionally served with fried chicken if it’s too hot for mashed potatoes.  It is very similar to our family’s favorite macaroni salad which is always a popular treat.  As long as you’re looking at these ingredients, I will also share the best damned Deviled Eggs recipe you’ll ever eat.  You’ll never even want to look at the store bought kind again after tasting these.  Even people who don’t typically like Deviled Eggs will be popping these like candy after a first bite.
