Summer Potato Salad Recipe

Potatoes are our all time favorites. Baked, fried or boiled, we love them in every form. The potato salad here is a lemony one. The traces of lemon juice make it just more exciting and delectable. The lemony flavor also adds an element of surprise for the guests. Boiled eggs are added to boiled potatoes and then mixed with a seasoning of vinegar, lemon juice and other ingredients to give a delicious taste.
