Old Fashioned Homemade Cooked Potato Salad

This potato salad recipe is a treasured family heirloom that is revered and greatly anticipated for summer family reunions & potluck gatherings. Its magic is its simplicity!  The boiled dressing is the name for a typical dressing that was very popular (and very good) that you would have seen at the turn of the last century. In fact it would have been standard fare on potato salad for the better part of the 20th century at the Fryeburg State Fair. By far the best potato salad you will ever taste.
