Plated + Served: All American Potato Salad


Want to know the most difficult thing about this potato salad? Shooting a photo for this website that does it justice.

This is actually a delicious tasting salad especially because it works so well with “add-ons”: chopped crisp bacon, shredded celery, hard-boiled eggs wedges, diced red and green pepper, minced dill pickles… the list goes on and on.

So, for now at least, forget that you need to buy school supplies and who knows what else to get the kids ready for “back to school.” Whip up this potato salad, make some sandwiches and have dinner outside tonight, while the weather is warm and beautiful.

And while you’re out there, take a family photo, too. They won’t be young forever!
