What better way to kick off the start of summer then with a potato salad served along side some delicious bbq?
Classic Potato Salad is a summer staple in our home, and I usually end up making the first batch for Father’s Day dinner. I have tried several different variations over the years but I always keep coming back to my original. It’s super creamy, tangy and has just the right amount of crunch.
Potato salad makes a great make ahead side, and in my opinion tastes better the next day. The dressing uses only a few staple ingredients you likely already have on hand. I love to use fresh herbs in my potato salad to give it a lighter taste as well as to add a pop of fresh colour to the dish. You can of course substitute any of the salad ingredients to suit your taste, my favorite combination however is red potatoes, red and green onions, hard boiled eggs, fresh parsley and a little extra secret ingredient.
