Hi, my name is Erica. Growing up I feared, disliked and generally abhorred mayonnaise and miracle whip like substances. As an adult, I have learned that I don't have to fear it, but I still don't like it. I still avoid using it in recipes. As a result my kids don't know potato salad, pasta salad, and deviled eggs and the like. My preferences have warped my kids perception of what an American picnic ought to include.
Besides the mayo issue, Potato Salad seems like a ton of work-- cooking the potatoes, the eggs. Chopping stuff, chilling stuff... All for a measly side dish. It has never been worth the effort to me.
This summer I am repenting. I want to find a potato salad recipe worthy of my time, taste-buds, and effort. Will you help me? PLEASE!?! I can't have my kids growing up and going away to college without knowing what potato salad is! (Thankfully I have a couple years left to make amends.)
Thus, I hereby announce the TriHarderLiveBetter Potato Salad Recipe Collection Week-- Reply with your favorite potato salad recipe (German, Pink, Purple, what have you). Everyone can try some new recipes and I will FINALLY learn to like potato salad.
