Always A Winner Potato Salad

Always A Winner Potato Salad


"This is a wonderful, light potato salad which includes shrimp. My mother used to make this for every picnic or potluck dinner. Every time I take it to a potluck I get raves for it, and the recipe is always requested. You may need to adjust the amount of mayo, depending on the size of the potatoes you use. You will use at least 2 cups, but may need to use a little more for a nice consistency."

I felt there was too much paprika. It left the salad a strange color. I will not make this again.

My husband has always raved about his mothers potato salad and I have never been able to come close. Well this year he found a new favorite. I left the eggs out because he has never been fond of...
