Mama’s Potato Salad

  • Yield: 12 servings

"Everyone liked the way Mother combined egg yolks with the seasonings in this recipe. It gives the salad such a good taste. When I take it to covered dish luncheons, I'm always asked for the recipe. I get lots of compliments on the way it's put together."

6 hard-cooked (boiled) eggs
1medium onion, finely chopped
