Baked Potato Salad

This potato salad was awesome. AWESOME. I am not a big fan of potato salad, and I rarely make it. If every potato salad tasted like this one, the world would be a much better place. It is kind of high in calories, but it is worth the splurge. I can’t wait to make this one again!
