Celebrate America’s Independence Day!

Independence Day honors the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 ~ today is the birthday of the United States of America!  The reason for you and me to proudly fly the American flag.

Whether you're relaxing with a day at the beach, watching a parade,  attending a concert or feasting with family and friends on juicy hamburgers, hot dogs, spicy ribs and Grandma's potato salad, have a safe and Happy 4th and enjoy the fireworks display!



Unfortunately, I don’t have Grandma’s potato salad recipe but I do have a delicious lemony potato salad recipe for you that’s perfect for the 4th or anytime! 

Lemony Potato Salad 

Ingredients: 

5 cups peeled and cubed potatoes  
3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1/3 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup mayonnaise 
2 teaspoons white sugar  
1 ½ teaspoons salt  
1 ½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce  
2 teaspoons dry mustard  
½ teaspoon ground black pepper  
3 green onions, sliced 
1/3 cup chopped celery  

Method: 

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes.
Cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, and
transfer to a large bowl.  
Add chopped eggs to potatoes.  
In a small bowl, combine and mix together lemon juice,
sugar, salt, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and black pepper.
Blend in mayonnaise. Pour lemon dressing over potatoes,
and stir to coat.  
Mix in green onions, celery, and parsley. Refrigerate for at
least 2 hours before serving.  

Delicious!!!
