Are you looking for an easy Red Potato Salad recipe?
My husband is NOT a picky eater. He will eat my burnt grilled cheese sandwiches without a word. He will eat my brownies even when they are overcooked and are as hard as a hockey puck. Have I mentioned that I really love my husband?
Now I have a son-in-law who has somewhat discriminating tastes. In fact, we tease him and say that he has a “Golden Palate”. I don’t think that my hockey puck brownies would get past him in a New York City minute.
But back to potato salad. I have made many a potato salad in my time and my husband has always eaten it. No complaints, but no compliments either. If I really think about it, I think it might be because his mother (obviously my mother-in-law) makes a GREAT potato salad and I don’t think he wants to compare my cooking to hers! He’s a smart man.
Well, I ran across this old recipe that I found in my files and decided to give it a whirl. We were barbecuing and I needed a great side dish.
One of the best things that I can say about this Red Potato Salad is that hubby liked it. And he even said so! Aren’t those the best recipes? When your family actually makes a positive comment about something that you’ve made? So this recipe quickly came out of my recipe archives and into my front and center recipe files. It’s simple and easy and I think that you’ll like it too.
