Potato Salad Recipe

Ok, if you've been invited to a MD picnic & are supposed to bring something, here's my family Potato Salad recipe (Pop's Deli Potato Salad):

figure 2 russet potatos per person - or more. (or, you can use new red potatos & skip peeling stage)
cider vinegar
scallions
dried parsley
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
Mayo (NOT MIRACLE WHIP!!) - Hellmans, Best, or make your own!

Boil the potatos until they are fork tender (that means a big cooking fork will pierce the tater easily. Don't overcook until the tater falls apart!). Drain the pot completely, and let the potatos sit in the pot drying for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop up the scallions (or onions, or red onions - whatever) & put them in a large bowl)

Now, peel the skins off the potatos (best to leave the cold water dripping to cool off your fingers!) one at a time, and slice each potato, as it's peeled, into the bowl. 1st potato, dribble some cider vinegar over it, then repeat cider dribble every other potato. When you dribble cider vinegar, also shake some garlic salt, parsley, & ground pepper, and TOSS with a spatula - don't stir it up & smash those tater slices!

Cover this mix & put it in the fridge until tomorrow.

Tomorrow, add mayo & stir it up at least 2 hours before serving.... this stuff is foolproof, so long as you can keep people from eating it before you put the mayo in....

I posted this before, but this is the perfect thread to post again. I got and tried this recipe from a forum I occasionally frequent, www.thesmokering.com about BBQing/grilling.

However many small red potataoes you need. (6-8 for two, or 6-8 bags for a bunch) wash, grease skins and set on bbq to cook through.

In a big bowl combine

1 great big blob of miracle whip
1 great big blob of mayo
1 great big blob of sour cream

(Blob size is completely relevant to group size. The bigger the group, the bigger the blob.)

whisk together.

ADD:

1/2 - ?? lbs. of crispy bacon, crumbled
1/2 - ?? lbs. shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped FRESH Rosemary, Basil, Parsley
1/2-?? diced Red Onion
Chopped fresh Garlic to taste (I use a helluva lot!!)
Salt (Kosher) to taste
Pepper ( I use three peppercorn melange after a quick trip thru the coffee/spice grinder.)

In a big bowl whisk together the miracle whip, mayo and sour cream. Add garlic, onion, cheddar cheee and crumbled bacon and chopped herbs, salt and pepper.

Chop up the roasted reds, including skin, and fold into the mayo mixture. chill for an hour or two. When the meat is ready, tear it up!!

You can use green onion as well as some roasted red pepper chopped in there, or add your own twist!! Who cares! If it's BBQ it's ALL good!
This is some kick @ss potato salad!!

The picnic salad of choice lately is a broccoli salad with a creamy dressing, shredded cheese and bacon bits. It's not only delicious, but it's impressive how bad for you it can make broccoli. Before that I was hooked on couscous salad with almonds and raisins. I used to do a hot German potato salad in my crock pot, but haven't in a while.

Re: Potato Salad
Try substituting half the mayo (NOT Miracle Whip!) with plain yogurt.
Not only is it healthier, but the salad has a 'cooler', and 'tangier' taste.
