Potato Salad (Yes, Again)
The other day my mom posted about potato salad here. Unbeknownst to me before reading her post, she expected me to whip up a version of my own.
Gauntlet thrown? Check.
Challenge accepted? Instantly.
So, this weekend I made this insanely easy and fantastically flavorful potato salad. I've got a bit of a thing against mayonnaise (it's not a hard, fast rule but more of a general resistance) and so I was excited to find a recipe (in that marvelous pull-out pamphlet my mom referenced from the Food Network Magazine) that went without. It was so good, in fact, that as we speak I have potatoes boiling for another batch. I'll put some in a tupperware for a soiree we're attending this evening and leave the rest in the refrigerator for my mother-in-law when she gets in to visit later this week.
And once it's all gone? Yeah, I'll be making it again. STAT.
I made the Herb-Vinegar version (#23), but here's the total recipe list from the FNM for your mouth-watering perusal.
My only modification was using more potatoes (I think you could go up to a whole pound more. There's a ton of dressing). John and I are thinking that sometime we'd like to throw some crumbled bacon into the mix, too.
