Over a cup of coffee: More salad recipes

Last week's column featured two recipes for potato salad. I chatted with Bev Miller of Craig on Tuesday. She said that she uses mashed potatoes to make potato salad, too. She adds some mustard to her salad. I haven't ever used mustard, but I'll try it the next time I make potato salad.

This week's column features another potato salad recipe and other two other salads, all courtesy of Geraldine Coleman of Craig. (I enjoyed visiting with you this week, Geraldine.)
