- For most of my life, I have not loved potato salad. I especially have not loved the ones I have made. I really wanted to like it. Potato salad is such a staple when it comes to barbecues and pot lucks. It seems like something I would like because I like the ingredients that go in it, like potatoes and hard boiled eggs. But, it just never really did anything for me. Well, a number of years ago, I was asked to bring the potato salad to a get together with friends. I was determined to make it the best potato salad ever! And guess what! I did it! I used a couple of secret ingredients that really perked this salad up. Now I'm willing to make and bring potato salad to dinners. I use this recipe and I have never looked back!
- Reason #2 is that our weather here in Phoenix, as with the rest of the country, has been very strange and unpredictable. We had cold and overcast skies with rain over this long weekend, and then on Monday mid-morning, the skies cleared and the sun was shining! My husband asked if I wanted to have a campfire in our backyard and cookout that evening! That sounded like fun so I invited our local-living kids over and we started preparing to grill burgers. Of course, I had to make potato salad to go with burgers! We have a fire pit in our backyard that we love to use as much as possible. My husband built ours, but you can find portable ones here or here. The prices on both of those are really good right now!
- The final reason I decided to give you the potato salad recipe is that I haven't finished the tutorial for the boy's Valentines yet, because I was busy making potato salad!
Now it is time for the final ingredients, including one more unexpected one.
I am going to give you a written recipe, but I want you to remember that many of the ingredients are a matter of taste, so you will want to add more or less according to what you like. I am giving you this 7 potato recipe. You will need to change amounts accordingly if you make a larger or smaller salad.
