Somehow, my potato salad has come to signify special occasions at our house. Maybe because of the tradition my husband and I started before we married to make a picnic lunch of his fried chicken, my potato salad, and wedges of watermelon and go for a hike in the mountains to celebrate our birthdays. Try it for your own special picnics!
