Potato Salad

tailgate time

Any barbequed item’s favorite side dish! This potato salad recipe is a hit at just about every outdoor party. It’s creamy and crunchy. It’s salty and sweet. The real secret of this potato salad is the potatoes – you cook them until they are close to mashable and then you mash them, folding in the other ingredients as you go, while the potatoes are still hot. This creates a salad that tastes good warm, great cold and the best the day after.
