Picnic Potato Salad

Yes! Memorial Day is almost here and BBQ’s and deck parties will be inescapable. Everyone has their own favorite summer recipes and even though I know you do too, I would like to add another one to the bunch…picnic potato. This picnic potato salad is so good.


There is just enough boiled eggs so that folks are not complaining that their portion doesn’t have enough eggs. Also, since there is a fare share of eggs in this recipe, I thought that I would add some bacon too. Bacon and eggs is like peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and cream. Chocolate and peanut butter.


See, I knew you would be on board. Give it a try and see what you think.
