Lifestyle: Every body must be fed. Guest food blogger
Shoko and I thought the month of June should be the kick off month for summer. What says summer more than salads? There are so many salads. You have your potato, green, Greek. pasta……the list is almost endless.
Our choice was potato salad. Potato salad is pretty easy to make and basic. You can put a variety of things in the potato salad. If, you read a recipe and don’t like what they added you can miss that item and it won’t make the potato salad taste like crap!
No one needs to see cut up potato and egg Tyebe. Ya, we could show it when it’s all cut up.
It needs to be more up close and personal….c’mon….let me see small tasty ingredients
See how the red pepper gives the salad colour. I tell ya Tyebe at least 70% of the meal is presentation. We just get our food plunked down in front of us. Mom used to tell us all the good things about our meal while we were eating but dad just gives it to us. We need red pepper in our tuna Fancy Feast.
2 big old potatoes
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
1 stalk of celery
3 green onions
1/4 cup of Craisins
5 strips of cooked bacon
3 slices of dill pickle…chopped
1/4 C of chopped red pepper
1 tbsp of Bold and Spicy mustard. ( or to taste)
1/4 C mayo (or to taste)
1 1/4 tsp of thyme (to taste)
salt and pepper to taste.
sprinkle of sweet smoked paprika
Once you have the ingredients together chop the items small enough for a good taste of everything in one chew. Add thyme, salt and pepper. In a small dish mix mayo and mustard, then add to the potato salad. Smooth down potato salad and sprinkle with Sweet Smoked Paprika If, you don’t care for something, toss it out and add what you like. Have fun with it.
