RECIPE: Spring Potato Salad

We love potato salad. We grew up on two recipes: Mom’s classic picnic potato salad (potatoes, mayo, Dijon mustard, red onion, celery, bell pepper) and her warm German potato salad recipe (potatoes, bacon, onions, chives, garlic, parsley and dill in a mustard vinaigrette).

But there are hundreds of very worth potato salad recipes. This one, from The United States Potato Board—people who know their potatoes. This spring-themed recipe incorporates arugula, fresh peas in a mustatard-mint vinaigrette.

Serve it at your next barbecue. It‘s a delight!
