"This is my mother's recipe and is a combination of my two grandmothers' potato salad recipes. It leans a little to the Irish side. My mother's maiden name is McClain and her mother's maiden name is McBee. I like to make this the night before so the flavors will blend." — Cindy Foster

This was tasty. I cut the recipe down to 6 since I didn't need so much. I skipped the eggs because I'm not a fan of them in potato salad. This was nice. I've never used green olives in potato salad before. I enjoyed it but my family wasn't thrilled with the green olives. I'll make this again. Thanks!
This is truly a 5 star recipe! Only change was a small increase in the mayo. Prepared it for a group of 25 people and they all raved about it. I now have the assignment to be "the official potatoe salad maker" for the group. Make sure it has time to chill thoroughly. Grace
