When it comes to picnics, patio parties, and potlucks, one side dish reigns supreme: potato salad. Creamy or chunky, mellow or tangy, a salad starring spuds is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds and bring out the best in other foods.
Potato salad is as American as the Fourth of July, and inside Potato Salad you’ll find lots of homestyle recipes, each with a tasty twist that makes it special: Farmer’s Market Salad (with peas, sweet onions, and chives), Grilled Potato Salad (with beer and caraway), and Double Tater Salad (with sweet potatoes, raisins, and smoked paprika), to name just a few. But you’ll also find tempting tater recipes from around the world, such as German Warm Potato Salad (with bacon and apple-cider vinegar) and Potato Salad Olé (with chiles, cumin, and lime juice).
For author Debbie Moose, potato salad is too versatile to disappear during cool weather, and too good to remain a mere side dish. You’ll discover more than 25 recipes for “Uptown Taters” that pair perfectly with elegant indoor meals: Tarragon-Lemon Potato Salad, Tuscan Taters (with capers, basil, and sun-dried potatoes), and even Spuds Step Out (with caviar!). And if you’re looking for an easy one-dish meal, try a “Spud Supper” such as Potato Salad with Crab or Spring Ham Salad.
Illustrated with more than 35 gorgeous color photographs and featuring savvy tips on selecting and cooking potatoes, Potato Salad is just what you need to rediscover your roots and put together tasty tater salads for every occasion. So invite some friends, boil some potatoes, and get creative. This spud’s for you!
