It’s Potato Salad Time Again!

                               

Potato salad.

Don’t ya just love it? 😉

It’s such a summer/picnic/BBQ favorite.

                                             

I love all kinds of potato salad. Particularly recipes with lots of fresh dill included.

I recently tried this amazing Dilly Potato Salad (pictured above) from the cookbook:

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Sensational Salads by Leslie Bilberback.

                                 

Chef Bilberback has kindly allowed me to share the recipe for this yummy salad with you.

And just in time for July 1st and July 4th holidays, coming up in the next few days.

See the complete recipe on page two.

And if you are looking for lots of great salad recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, this is definitely a cookbook you might want to add to your collection. I’m looking foward to trying a lot more in the near futureI ♥ (all kinds) of  salads.

                                     

Happy July 1st and July 4th. 🙂

“Simply the Best Potato Salad” from Not Just for Vegetarians

 

I love salads, all kinds, all year round. But summer (just around the corner) has got to be “salad season” if there is such a thing for foods!

Cool, delish and refreshing. Always a crowd-pleaser for picnics and b-b-q’s too.

We had this as part of supper last night, yummm….rich, creamy and very satisfying.


I’ve included the complete recipe on page 2…

 

What’s your favorite “summer salad”? If you can, please share a link to the recipe too.

 

Happy Week to You. 🙂 And summer, bring it on!
