You say potato and so do I! Potato salad, that is. And what a wonderful thing it is; a summer mainstay!
I know there are as many recipes for potato salad as there are potatoes and everyone has their favorite recipe for it, including me. This is a pretty basic recipe filled with delicious potatoes, onions and sweet pickles. I use Miracle Whip for the dressing because I love Miracle Whip. As a kid, I ate a Miracle Whip sandwich after school.
Anyway, I added some celery seed and topped it with smoked paprika. Ordinarily, I add sliced olives, just for Bill, but the olives in the refrigerator disappeared. This house is seldom without a variety of olives and to Bill’s chagrin the potato salad didn’t get any this time.
I’m just wondering if your potato salad has a secret ingredient ~ if so; please share it with us!
