summer potato salad

summer potato salad

summer is my favorite season. it’s hot out, we can wear flip-flops, and we get to eat all the amazing outdoor summer food we want (right?!).

this is one of our favorite potato salad recipes. i always make it on a summer holiday like memorial day or the 4th of july because it goes along so great with whatever outdoor meal i have planned. philly cheese steaks, anyone?

the best part about this recipe is that it’s a cinch to put together. all you need are potatoes (red are my favorite, with the skins ON), hard-boiled eggs, cream, sour cream, miracle whip, green onions, s&p, celery seed, garlic powder, sugar, mustard, and vinegar. and if you’re like me, you’ll also want to add in a couple chopped dill pickles and/or sliced celery!

after boiling and chopping the potatoes and peeling and chopping the eggs, all you need to do is throw is throw everything else in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours. it doesn’t have to be complicated to be good!
