Reviewed Classic Potato Salad

Jul 5, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was a hit! I used more potato than called for and I think it could have handled more for the amount of dressing in the recipe but that's probably just my preference because everyone loved it.

Very good salad! I grilled the corn but I'm not sure this made a big difference.

Not sure of the weight but I used a rather large squash which was perfect for this recipe. Delicious!...
