What can be more fun than a picnic? In Central NY, we are covered in the white stuff and it will be awhile before we can begin thinking of picnics! But why not one indoors? Get out the George Foreman Grill and make some burgers or hot dogs...toast a few buns...make your favorite potato salad and you can even find some good frozen corn on the cob to add to the mix. Spread out a blanket on the floor, turn on the game and you are good to go.
This weekend we will be picnic-ing at home. Here is our family's favorite potato salad recipe. I found it in a Penzey's Spice catalog a few years back and it is the most requested by the kids.
Peppery Potato Salad
4 lbs. Russet potatoes
1 medium yellow onion, diced fine, or 1 bunch green onions (cut off both ends, discard, and thinly slice the center portion for best flavor)
5 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and diced
2 TB. BUTTERMILK RANCH DRESSING or 1 package Ranch dressing
2 TB. water
1 1/2 - 2 Cups low-fat mayonnaise (I use the Canola mayo)
1/2-- 3/4 Cup buttermilk or milk
2 TB. red wine vinegar
3/4 tsp. freshly ground SPECIAL EXTRA BOLD BLACK PEPPER
1 tsp. ALEPPO PEPPER, to top each dish ( I just sprinkle with some paprika)
Hope you all have a great weekend!
