Mom's Potato Salad

My Mom is no longer with us but her potato salad lives on! Best recipe EVER. It takes several days to make: one to boil the potatoes and then refrigerate them overnight. 2nd day is to make the "sauce" and then put it over the sliced, peeled potatoes and THOSE stay in 'frig overnight. So you really don't get to eat it until day 3, but it sure is worth it!
JoAnn's Potato Salad
