New Potato Salad

Sometimes there is nothing like an old fashioned Potato Salad to compliment a great meal plan. I like many of you have several different recipes that I use, but I want to share one of my favorites with you today.

Ice Cold Potato Salad

This is a real creamy and crisp salad with lots of different textures and a unique flavor from The Pickle Pot.

Lots of Fresh Garden Vegetables

  16. Thank you so much for sharing this at Recipe Sharing Monday. I hope to see you back tomorrow :)

  17. do you have any idea how much i LOVE potato salad? when i was a kid, i used to eat potato salad sandwiches. luckily for me, i was a swimmer and could use the calories...but if only i could get away with that now, i would whip this up and slide it into a soft potato roll, open a bottle of root beer and sit on the porch basking in my happiness! instead, i will invite myself to a potluck and bring this as the prize! thank you for sharing with tuesday night supper club!


Your visit has been very special. I look forward to your comments, they are like opening little gifts. Thank you for stopping by and hurry back!
