This recipe from Judy should definitely be included in your weekly family planner only if for the fact that it is very easy to prep and put together. The best way to make potato salad is by using leftover potatoes. Not only does it cut your prep time in half it also adds flavor especially if you are using flavored potato leftovers.
Yes leftovers were usually just reheated and served to diners that would get that; oh my leftovers again look on their face. Leftover have gotten a bad rap and if you just be creative you will find numerous ways to include them in many different recipes. The next time you are roasting, boiling, steaming or baking potatoes always strive to add a few extra since they are great in many recipes and they also have a pretty long fridge life as well. When you decide to boil potatoes for the recipe or are making just add extra and when you get to the point that the fork can start to penetrate, but not go through, the potato then take some out and put them aside while the rest cook to a softer finish. The not totally soft potatoes are great to then run under cold water, shocking them and stopping the cooking process, and then just put them in a tight container and refrigerate for a later use. They go great chopped into any shape you like and fried with onions and some salt and pepper. Or else they are great additions to soups, casseroles and any other ways you can possibly imagine.
The versatility of potatoes is one of many reasons they are one of the largest produced and cultivated crops in the world. Every country uses them in a wide variety of ways and recipes and this is one great vehicle for them The next time the gang is coming over for a party or to watch the big game then take Judy’s recipe and follow it to the max or be creative and add your own spin.
