Homegrown Potato Salad

You can do a lot with those homegrown potatoes. Here's an idea for a tasty treat.

Homegrown Potato Salad

In large bowl add:

1 small, diced sweet onion

6 large, diced radishes (or substitute celery, cucumber, green or red pepper or whatever you prefer)

4 diced, boiled eggs (optional)

6 medium, diced potatoes

one cup salad dressing or mayo

2 T (tablespoons) mustard

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup real, bacon pieces (optional for vegetarian style)

Mix it all up add a little paprika and chopped parsley on top and enjoy.

Great with sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken, ribs, steak, chops or just all by itself.

There are a lot of other ways to enjoy your potato harvest including scalloped, boiled herb and buttered, pan fried, hash browns, baked, twice baked and loaded, french fries, mashed, or in a crock pot with garden carrots, onions and a pot roast (easy and doesn't heat the big oven).

If anyone is interested in home made jalapeno poppers, let me know. Those should be ready to harvest soon. I have a great recipe for those as well as a good summer, hearty macaroni salad.

  1. This looks very very good, my mother took the recipe and this blog is so worth following. Keep up the great work :)

  2. Nice of you to say. I'm sure she will enjoy this dish (maybe she'll make some extra for you) : )

  3. This potato salad does indeed looks tasty! I will try it at my barbeque this weekend, thanks for sharing it.

  4. I think they will like it a lot at the barbeque. Watch out though; they might want you to make it every time once they have a taste.

  5. Seems so yummy! Thanks for sharing :)
