Labor Day and Tater Salad!

Labor Day is just around the corner and that means barbecues and picnics with family and friends. Whether you’re the host/hostess or have been asked to bring a dish, one thing that is a must is the crowd favorite…potato salad! You’d be hard pressed to find anything that it does not compliment! And, it’s not like you have to spend hours preparing it. Yes, everyone probably has a recipe that has been handed down for ages but here’s a few new ones you might want to try…they have all been hits with our friends. 🙂

If you want to add a little zing try this one…

Cajun Potato Salad

5 lbs potatoes

½ cup red bell pepper, diced

½ cup green bell pepper, diced

½ cup green onion, sliced

½ cup purple onion, diced

3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

2 ½ cups mayonnaise

¼ cup pickle relish (optional)

1 ½ tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp Cajun Wing’n Season

salt to taste

Cook potatoes (peeled or with skins left on). Cut into chunks and set aside. Mix mayonnaise, mustard, Cajun Wing’n Season and relish. Mix in remaining ingredients except for the potatoes! Toss mixture with warm potatoes. Salt to taste and chill overnight.

How about a summer garden favorite like Dill? This one is great!

Herb’n Dill Potato Salad

2 lbs new potatoes, cubed 1/2”

1 rib celery, diced

2 tbsp mild banana pepper rings, diced

¼ cup purple onion, diced

3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped

1 cup mayonnaise

1 tbsp Herb’n Dill

1 ½ tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

Boil potatoes for 15 minutes or until just fork tender; drain and let cool 15-20 minutes. Combine potatoes with the next 4 ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Combine mixture with the potatoes, cover and refrigerate overnight…stirring 1 or 2 times to blend.

Or maybe you’d like something a bit different…a warm tater salad! By the way…this herb blend has no cheese in it…it’s dairy free! Long story, for another time, on how it became named this. lol

Cheese’n Season Warm Tater Salad

2 lbs new taters cut into 1/2” chunks…peel if you want to.

1 tsp salt

½ cup vegetable oil

1 tbsp Cheese’n Season

1 cup onion, diced

½ cup celery, diced

½ cup carrots, shredded

¼ cup mayonnaise

2 tbsp white vinegar

Par boil the taters in salted water until fork tender…about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain well. In a large skillet heat oil over medium/high heat; add taters, Cheese’n Season and veggies. Cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until veggies are crisp tender. Stir in mayo and vinegar. Salt to taste. We sprinkle ours with crumbled bacon for an added treat! Serve warm.

All three of these herb blends are available on our website at www.herbnrenewal.com. Please remember that they are all hand blended, not like the stuff available at your local grocery store, so it might take a day or two before we mail your order out.
