Dale Earnhardt Jr. Aunt Cathy's Potato Salad recipe

I love a good potato salad recipe…and I love potato salads that use red skinned potatoes!  I don’t know why, but I think they just taste so much better!  That creamy-ness of the red skinned potato is just delicious!!  We’ve made this particular recipe a few times…and even when we feel like we just have a taste for homemade potato salad.  Those store bought ones just never do the trick.  :)  This one is quite the different take than a traditional recipe, but I do think you’ll enjoy it!!  :)
