I know I've posted this in the past. I apologize for the redundancy. It was a good three day weekend, with a good balance of busy and relaxing, with a nice short parade on Monday. Picnic season is here and Chuck brought his German potato salad
to share. Here's my standard potato salad; we're a two potato salad family! Ah, so skilled, we are.
1 1/2 lb. red salad potatoes, cut into small chunks (peeling optional; I like mine peeled)
1/2 cup Miracle Whip or similar dressing
2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
3 green onions, diced
black pepper to taste
Cook potatoes in boiling water about 15-18 minutes, until tender. Drain. Rinse with cold water. Drain again, completely.
Combine remaining ingredients in medium mixing bowl. Add potatoes; mix lightly. Sprinkle with fresh herbs if you wish, and then leave a comment for me. I love new variations on old recipes!
Refrigerate several hours until chilled.
The green onions and chives are up. I take pleasure in knowing that I don't have to buy green onions; I can just walk out to the garden and pick one when I need it. It's a simple pleasure.
Enjoy. Stay out of the storms, and enjoy the good weather as long as it lasts.
