Posted on by admin | in Housekeeping

Summer is coming, and with it comes warm nights spent out on the patio eating dinner or picnicking at the lake. Potato salad is a traditional picnic food, but it’s gotten a bad rap over the years because it can spoil if left out in the heat too long. Although many people believe it’s the mayo that causes the salad to go bad, more often it’s the stuff mixed with it that makes it spoil. If you will be staying close to home or eating dinner in a cool, air-conditioned house, then a traditional potato salad recipe may be just what the addition your meal needs.  But if you will be eating al fresco, you might want to try one of the tasty alternatives that allow you to enjoy potato salad sans the spoilage.  Check out these 24 blog articles that share various potato salad recipes.


The traditional potato salad recipe includes boiled potatoes cut into chunks, mayonnaise, salt and pepper and hard-boiled eggs. Some people also like to mix in some mustard with the mayonnaise to give the salad a tangy twist.  Take a look at these six blog posts for a new recipe to try this year.
