Memorial Day BBQ

For Memorial Day we grilled some burgers and corn and I made my potato salad:


While the corn was good in the grilled corn salad it wasn't as good just eaten off the cob. I love this recipe for potato salad. It's my go-to for picnics:



All- American Potato Salad
Cook's Country Magazine

2 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into ¾-inch cubes
1½ tsp salt, divided
3 Tbs dill pickle juice, plus ¼ cup finely chopped dill pickles, divided
1 Tbs yellow mustard
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp celery seed
½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
½ small red onion, chopped finely
1 rib celery, chopped finely
2 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled and cut into ¼-inch dice (optional)

Place potatoes in large saucepan with cold water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to boil over high heat, add 1 tsp. salt, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until potatoes are tender, 10- to 15 minutes.

Drain potatoes thoroughly, then spread out on rimmed baking sheet. Mix 2 Tbs. pickle juice and mustard together in small bowl, drizzle pickle juice mixture over potatoes, and toss until evenly coated. Refrigerate until cooled, about 30 minutes.

Mix remaining tablespoon pickle juice, chopped pickles, remaining ½ tsp. salt, pepper, celery seed, mayo, sour cream, red onion and celery in a large bowl. Toss in cooled potatoes, cover, and refrigerate until well chilled, about 30 minutes. Gently stir in eggs, if using, just before serving.

  1. I'm really looking forward to the tastes of summer, grilled corn included. Funny it didn't taste the same of the cob.

    I may make this potato salad again, you know, in secret. ;) I like including the eggs too!
