BBQ worthy Potato Salad

Happy July 4th y’all!

I’m not American, but today is a happy day for me nonetheless because this is the first day it has actually been sunny so far this summer!

No I don’t live in the North Pole…although it felt like it 2 days ago! That’s right, I hauled out my winter quilt at bedtime.

So today when millions of Americans are attending a BBQ and getting their drink on, I am doing just the same…minus the drinking part. I don’t drink. Anyway…

It will be potluck style so I’m bringing a salad.The old fashioned potato salad.

Let me tell you a little secret!

I attended a BBQ one month ago where I had to bring a potato salad. I was so nervous because I had never ever made potato salad in my life and was serving it to experienced potato salad makers.

The night before my potato salad debut, my husband came home with a big a$$ bag of potatoes for $5.

What on earth am I going to do with all these potatoes! I only need 3 for juggling, what am I going to do with the 67 others??

So now, for every potluck, BBQ, birthday party or baby shower, I have been bringing potato salad just to get them outta my house.

In case you’re wondering…only 8 potatoes left! Wahooo!!!

I’ve been getting compliments on the potato salad so here ya go! Serves 8
