It's time for Foodie Friday - another week of sharing recipe favorites. This week I'm bringing back a recipe that Susan of "A Southern Daydreamer" shared with us -- Zesty New potato Salad.
Now, I normally wouldn't make a different potato salad than the one I've been making for 34 plus years. I really like my potato salad and I could almost make it with my eyes shut -- I don't have to measure a thing, just put it all together by habit. But when I saw this I thought "I'm in a potato salad rut! Time to try something new". How about you? Are you in a rut too? Well here's a great recipe to try!
Here's what you need:
2 lbs of new potatoes cut into quarters 1/2 cup Miracle Whip lite 2 Green onions sliced 4 teaspoons Grey Poupon Savory Honey Mustard 2 teaspoons honey 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Bring potatoes to a boil and cut back to medium low and cook for 20 minutes. Rinse and drain.
Mix all the next ingredients in a large bowl - add potatos, mix and cover. Refrigerate overnight.
Now I don't usually use Miracle Whip but I used it and since that's not the strongest flavor, I really didn't pick up that taste here. Also I couldn't find that particular flavor of Grey Poupon so I substituted Ingleboffer sweet hot mustard (with honey). This had a real zip to it - sort of like a chinese mustard only milder -- not your knock your head off, clear your sinuses, watering eyes, grab the water bottle kind of hot! I really did like this and I'm planning to make it again -- I think it would be a really good compliment to the bar-b-que recipe that I shared last week. I might add just about a 1/4 cup of shredded cabbage next time just to give it a little crunch. So if you're in a potato salad rut - give this one a try -- I think you'll be glad. Thanks Susan for sharing this.
Now it's time to see what everybody else is cooking up this week over at Designs By Gollum!
