Southern Potato Salad

A barbecue isn’t a barbecue until you have the perfect side dish, and potato salad is one of my favorites. I am a sweet, southern potato salad lover. I just don’t like the ones that are super savory and too mustard-y. This one is the perfect blend of savory with a hint of sweet. It’s creamy and delicious and sure to be enjoyed by all.

If you are wanting to try the perfect potato salad to bring to your next BBQ get together, then you need to make this! Feel free to add celery if you like that crunch in with your potato salad, but it’s perfectly fine without it. You are going to love this Southern Potato Salad! My husband could eat this plain as his entire meal, he likes it that much! So good!
