creamy potato salad

This past week, I was thinking up some new recipes to take to cookouts this summer or to share when we host cookouts.  One dish that I knew I needed a good recipe for is potato salad.  Potato Salad is a staple at all of our cookouts, my family loves it!  Although they love it, I prefer to make it mainly to avoid all those unnecessary ingredients that are in the store bought salad.

This time I thought I would try to make the potato salad without mayonnaise and use Kraft’s Original Philadelphia Cooking Creme.  As soon as this was whipped up, my husband took a bite.  His response, “This taste good.”  Then, another bite, “This is REALLY good.”  It did not last very long after that.  We had family over and they ate it up!
