What goes with a gazzillion spring and summer meals?….wow, good guess! Below is my mom’s recipe for potato salad: easy, classic, delightful. I’ve added the step of making it ‘Stained Glass Potato Salad’, so you can ignore the coloring of the eggs if you want it to look traditional. Enjoy!
What you’ll need:
- one dozen eggs, hardboiled and peeled
- 9-10 medium sized potatoes
- 2 cups Miracle Whip (I use Light and it turns out great)
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard (or 2 tsp yellow)
- Food coloring (if you want to make it ‘stained glass’…great for Easter)
- Salt and pepper *you can also add a little dill
Hardboil the eggs and peel the shell. Place the peeled eggs in various glass of water mixed with whatever colors of food coloring you would like. ** You can also skip the next steps and just make deviled eggs!
Peel the potatoes and boil them (cook enough so a fork can poke through them easily). Let the potatoes cool.
Cut up the eggs and potatoes. Mix with the other ingredients.
Keep refrigerated and eat within a couple days.
I think glitter is the most fun. Unfortunately, it also can make the biggest mess….take your time to set out paper or plastic to work on.
- What you’ll need: modge podge, a cheap paintbrush, glitter, and plastic eggs (or whatever item you are glittering)
- Brush the glue onto the egg…yes, this is messy.
- Sprinkle glitter all over the egg…yes, this is messy too. You’ll probably need to rinse your hands off after each egg, so you can work on the next one.
- Let them dry overnight. Set up around a centerpiece, in a glass bowl, or hang them on a tree!
