Grandma Kay's Potato Salad revisited

This is my Grandmas recipe, it has always been a family favorite, Im not sure if anyone but me makes it anymore. Its sad. Anyways I dont really have a recipe because I just kind of throw it together like my grandma used to. She used red potatoes but I use the plain ol Idaho ones because they are cheaper and bigger :D

Grandma Kay's Potato Salad
we made this for a cookout so we made TONS you can see a beer can in one of the pics to compare how big the bowl is lol. We kept some and are sending some to the bbq

Boil potatoes, peel and cut into chunks. Add in some diced celery, minced up onion and some chopped boiled eggs. Add in some mayo, red wine vinegar and salt to taste. Let sit overnight to meld the flavors. I usually use about 6-9 potatoes, 6 boiled eggs (more if you want to decorate the top) maybe 2 stalks of celery and 1/4 to 1/2 a small onion. I dont like too much onion. The mayo, red wine vinegar and salt are just to your liking. Ive never measured it before :D

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. That potato salad sounds good - I've never used the vinegar before, but I like potato salad just about any way there is to make it!! Oh and thanks for the mention on the chicken salad too - hope you enjoy it!!
