The nice weather is finally here, actually it has been hot here for the last week, so that means BBQ's and cold suppers. Cold suppers at our house mean a BBQ chicken from the grocery store and a salad of some sort - yesterday it was potato salad and it was so good! I haven't made it since last summer, I just don't make it in the winter, do you? it really is the perfect summer meal!!
I used to make potato salad so plain and it wasn't very exciting. This is the greatest little recipe - and it is little, it's just for two, perfect if you're cooking for yourself or your children have flown the nest and it's just the two of you. The recipe is from Company's Coming - Cooking for Two.
1 1/2 c. diced cooked potatoes
Hard boiled egg, chopped - the recipe called for 1/2 an egg, I used the whole egg. I cooked two eggs, reserving one for the garnish.
2 tsp. minced onion, I used red onion, for some colour
Put ingredients in bowl.
1/4 c. salad dressing or mayonnaise ( I used Miracle Whip)
1 tbsp. coleslaw dressing
1/4 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tbsp. milk
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. parsley flakes
Mix these 8 ingredients in small bowl. Reserve 2 tsp. Pour remaining dressing over potato mixture in bowl. Toss.
Garnish with egg wedges. Drizzle with reserved dressing. Sprinkle with paprika.
