  3. Dear Nee,
    Boy, I do love a good potato salad as a side dish with a BBQ or a picnic or whatever I can add it to. Your recipe is wonderful, sounds delicious, and very inviting. Sounds easy and the jalapeno is a fantastic addition. Gives it that little kick. I am going to try this one for Father's Day, I know that the men in my family may enjoy this. Great post! Thanks for sharing...Blessing on a good weekend! :) Dottie
