Sometimes all you need in your life is one damn good potato salad, and this my friends is the best potato salad I’ve ever had.
We don’t eat a lot of potato in our house, maybe it’s because Carl had a potato allergy or because Arren and I both just love potato so much that we just shouldn’t have it in our house, because eating that much potato can’t be good for you, or can it? Please tell me it can.
A potato salad is a decadent salad, the salad that brings all the carbs to the yard and is not in the slightest bit embarrassed by it. It’s the salad that everyone wants when they think about salad, because a iceberg lettuce salad just sounds so blah, compared to a potato salad and this potato salad is the most decadent of them all.
Why you might ask?
Well, because when you combine, mayo, potatoes and you decided why not roast those potatoes up, you are in for one amazing taste explosion in your mouth, pair that with a zesty lemon and dill mayo and you’ve got yourself the best potato salad you will ever have.
but don’t take my word for it, try it yourself and experience true potato salad love.
