Luella Hollingshead’s Potato Salad

This is my favorite cold potato salad EVER. The recipe was handed down from Grandma Holly (as the grandkids called her). In the photo I had baked the potatoes instead of boiling them, which was handy, but I think the text and moisture is better done as the recipe calls for. Enjoy!

Boil the potatoes in salted water. Drain & cool. Boil eggs, peel and cool. In large bowl, combine sugar, celery seed,
