I thought I should at least post ONE recipe related to Indepedence Day. I mean after all, aside from the fact we’re celebrating the birth of our nation, we are throwing all caution to the wind and eating our faces off!
This is without a doubt one of the best potato salads I have ever had the pleasure of eating. No really. It’s insanely good. So if you are going to a cookout, hosting a cookout, or just want potato salad, may I recommend this recipe.
5 or 6 medium potatoes
hamburger dill pickle chips finely chopped
diced onions (but if you’re not a fan of the real deal, use a shake or two of onion powder)
a good solid squirt of mustard
mayonnaise (amount depends on how much you like mayo. I like mayo so I’ll be using a lot.) (oh and seriously, don’t try to get healthy with this step. I want to see you using the good stuff….Duke’s, Kraft, Blue Plate…)
Peel, wash and dice potatoes. Cook about 15 minutes after they come to a boil.
Drain potatoes, add other ingredients. Mix well.
And the final step-
This potato salad is incredible when served while still warm.
Trust me on this one.
So, what are your plans for this 4th of July?
Are you staying in town and spending time with friends?
Traveling to an exotic destination?
Watching fireworks with your 100,000 closest friends?
