What a nice simple summer potato salad recipe.

The soft texture of the potatoes combined with the crisp celery and chewy meat create a delightful mixture. This palate pleasing dish is always welcome at any picnic or barbecue throughout the continental U.S.

An additional benefit is that it tastes EVEN BETTER the second day. If prepared the day before and refrigerated over-night, the flavours will have had a chance to mingle. This added feature to this simple continental salad recipe lends itself to early preparation for those up-coming weekend events.
