End of Summer Potato Salad


I’m fighting the feeling of sunny summertime ending ~ the gradually shortening days of fall returning ~ adjusting to spending more time indoors.  We’re still cooking on the grill and making summer sides, like this dish, for a while yet.  




Potato salad is so versatile, but this one with dill pickles, juice and all, is a favorite for us.  Its loaded with crunchy dill pickles, in a snappy dill pickle juice infused dressing.  This potato salad makes dill pickles the star of the dish!

There are most likely as many potato salad recipes here in this grand land of ours as there are nuts in all the fruitcakes.  This easy adapted potato salad recipe came from here
  



It’s an old-fashioned dish with dill pickle pizzazz, that would’ve been great ~ had I remembered to cook hard-boiled eggs to add to it!  I thought of the eggs as we were eating ~ I didn’t bother to make apologies for it… I’m sure no one left the dinner table thinking, “If only she would’ve added eggs to the potato salad!"

It’s creamy, flavorful and delicious, even without the eggs; however, I'll add them next time, I bet.  Give it a try anytime... 

Do you make potato salad other seasons of the year, like during the dead of winter?

Have you ever forgotten to add an ingredient to a dish, and did you tell?

  4. Potato Salad does sound like summer. I don't leave ingredients out, but a Plan B substitute is always handy if it is not in the fridge or pantry. :)

  8. I always -- well, often -- forget to add ingredients to dishes! I just say it's something new. :-) I'll make a hot potato salad in the winter -- the German one with bacon -- but not the mayo-based ones. Don't know why not, actually, potato salad is good stuff! Anyway, this looks terrific. Thanks.

    1. Hi John! Yes, I only make potato salad in the summer, seems more like a side dish to grilled meat to me. Love the warm German potato salad we eat here, but when we lived in Germany, the same type potato salad was served cold. Glad I'm not the only one who forgets to add ingredients. Take care
