Notes: I have made a lot of potato salads in my day, and in this blog, and I feel like they are a cake walk for me, so I think that is why I gave it a low rating. This is classic and good. A nice staple, and a really yummy treat. You can use roasted chicken or grilled chicken, but canned works really well here. You can even use tuna if you want, but I think it is a little heavy. It is getting colder here in San Fran, and I think this is me holding hope that this summer will be hot hot hot…come on sun! act like the food I serve! Be summer!!!
