Since I will be celebrating Memorial Day with my new neighbors (we’re having a cook-out in the patio/garden) I thought some of your great recipes would be helpful! Anyone have a super recipe for potato salad? Barbeque chicken? Macaroni salad? Desserts?? Here’s my mom’s awesome recipe for potato salad:
10-12 medium potatoes peeled, cut into 1 inch pieces, and boiled until almost tender
1 medium onion–preferably a sweet onion chopped
1 small green pepper chopped
2 stalks celery chopped finely
1/4 pound bacon cooked until crisp, drained and cooled, and then crumbled
1-1/2 cup Miracle Whip (add more if you like a creamier salad, or less if you like a drier salad)
2 tbsp yellow mustard
4 tbsp parsley
4 hard boiled eggs chopped
salt & pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and let sit in the refrigerator overnight. Awesome!
She also used to make an Italian potato salad which was very different. I actually liked it better than the above recipe.
