16 Scrumptious Summer Side Dishes
Oh my goodness!
Is it Friday again already?
How did that happen? The week literally wizzed by.
I guess time flies when you’re looking at 16 amazing recipes all week.
This week I’m sharing “16 Scrumptious Summer Side Dishes” before it’s too late!
Can you feel it? Winter is brewing.
Okay, maybe not yet…but it sounded good.
Check these babies out.
Which one looks good to you?
One of those happens to be mine.
It’s a potato salad recipe I learned from my Mom & Dad.
I added a few extra ingredients just for fun, and hubby really liked it.
Although, nothing beats my Mom & Dad’s version.
Be sure to continue down after my American potato salad recipe to see the rest.
These gals are not only cute, they’re excellent cooks.
There’s even a hubby in the mix!
American Potato Salad
6-8 potatoes (any kind is fine by me boiled with skin on sister)
5 eggs hard boiled, peeled, and chopped (do 1 in slices for garnish later)
1 cup reduced fat Hellmann’s mayo (that’s what I use, and I can’t tell the difference)
1 tablespoon mustard (dijon preferred)
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles (more if you like pickles, less if you don’t)
1/4 cup dill pickle juice
1/4 cup vinegar
pinch of sugar
2-3 finely chopped celery stalks that have the leafy part on them (love that leafy part)
chopped green onions and/or chives (add as much as you prefer)
1 tablespoon parsley
S & P to taste
Directions: Boil potatoes in salted water until fork tender and falling apart. My father-in-law once explained that if they are over done, they’re ready. This will give the salad that homemade consistency rather than under cooked potatoes. Drain and cool potatoes when finished. While waiting, add all other ingredients except the 1 sliced egg in the pan you just used for the potatoes. (less dishes folks) Mix well. Add potatoes once they are cooled. Mix well with your clean hands. Pour in pretty bowl. Sprinkle a few chives/pepper on top and place sliced egg like I did in picture. Cool really well for at least an hour, or just dig in and eat it right there before company arrives. :) Hope you like it.
