Summertime Potato Salad

When you think about summertime, potato salad is one of the side dishes that always comes to mind. It is wonderful with all the grilled and barbequed food we enjoy during the summer. It is also a great salad to serve with a favorite sandwich at lunchtime during those hot summer days. There are so many ways to make this classic salad!

  1. Hi Sharon~ Terre was kind enough to show me all of the recipes, and some of them were outstanding! The home remodel is quite lovely and looks contemporary. I love your dining room. You have been quite a busy girl, and that is a trait I’ve always admired you for- your talent.
    Things here have been well, however, of course I miss my home. The worst part has been that I had to put my beloved cat, Maxie to sleep-long story.
    I hope you and George are doing well.
    love, Elizabeth, your friend always XOXO
