Ok let’s talk potato salad for a sec. Because who doesn’t like potato salad?
It’s so nostalgic for me because I feel like my mom made it for every summer gathering we had at our house. It’s pretty famous – everyone LOVES my mom’s potato salad. (Or maybe I just ate the whole thing – I can’t remember.)
I feel like everyone has a favorite potato salad recipe. It’s just one of those things. Over the years I’ve made a FEW tweaks to Mom’s – I add a little pickle juice and lemon juice because I like mine super acidic and tangy AND I add a few capers. LOVE CAPERS.
Here’s my thing – there’s nothing wrong with potatoes (I eat a ton) but all those potatoes with loads of mayo results in a PRETTY heavy side dish. And while we know that calories are stupid, they aren’t something to completely ignore.
And if you’re like me, you want to indulge in this summer fav pretty much once a week so all those carbs and mayo can be a little over the top. Especially when I’m drinking margs at the pool party….
