Not So Low Fat Potato Salad

As a child growing up I had not developed a sweet tooth, so instead of cake every year for my birthday, but dad would make me a trough of potatoe salad with a candle in the center, glowing brightly in the middle of a beige hill of fat and starch. Ever since then I’ve been on the search for a perfect potato salad recipe, and besides the grocery store potato salad you can buy by the pound, this recipe is close to the holy grail of potato salad. It is not good for you, there is no low fat substitutes, just good ole patriotic, American potato salad.
