measurements based on taste).

pepper, etc)

Personal Notes:
Our family thinks this classic Southern style (some call Yellow or Mustard) is the best kind of potatoe salad. Could be since Wendi's mom, Judith Lewis Wilson Zettel and step mom, Diane Zetty Wilson make the best she's ever had! But of course, Wendi added a few touches of her own for this wonderful recipe.
