Potato Salad

Potato Salad 002Summer is just around the corner when it comes to making salads.  I don`t know why but I make more salads in the summer and I enjoy them more then too.  I don`t know they just seem tastier.   Starting off with this in house favorite.  I grew up with this salad and have continued to make it because everyone in my house loves it.  Isn’t it funny how traditions get carried on? 

My friends GG and V also make this salad with slight variations.  When it comes time to feed a large crowd or even a little one this hits the target.  Great with a BBQ, always a must for a picnic or as I made it for my Easter supper.  Really it is so versatile.  You can even prepare the whole lot without putting it together.  I always do the chopping of the veggies ahead.  I boil my potatoes and eggs ahead, so when I’m ready to put this together that’s all I have to do.  Put it together.  You can add what you like into it.  For example radishes, green onions, bacon, apples and pears, even pickles.  Just try the basic recipe and then decide what you would like to add.  It is reasonable price wise to make,  compared to what you would pay for it in the store and so much tastier.  So what are you waiting for?

This is the Miracle Whip I use.
