POT LUCKS CALL FOR POTATO SALAD
For Memorial Day picnics or any pot luck, potato salads are a perennial hit. With potatoes back at the Little Italy farmers' market, we have all the ingredients to make your family favorite or a new variation on the theme.
My daughters are firmly hooked on the classic they grew up on. It's easy to make with yellow fingerling potatoes from Weiser Farms (find them at the Polito Farms stand), lots of hard boiled eggs from Schaner Farms or Swiss Mountain Ranch, and chunks of dill pickle from Happy Pantry. Salt and pepper and moisten the whole thing with a mix of plain yogurt and mayonnaise and they're happy. Mr. Market likes things a little fancier. For him, red potatoes, boiled eggs, spring green onion from Sage Mountain Farms, some crisped up bacon from SonRise Ranch and a vinaigrette dressing are the way to go. He doesn't mind at all if I toss in garlic scapes from Schaner Farms, or mix things up with purple peruvians or sweet potatoes from Vang's Farm. You can imagine the diplomacy required to plan a picnic at our house.
Whatever your favorite potato salad recipe (and we'd love it if you'd share), our insulated Little Italy market bags will keep a well chilled tub nice and cool on the way to your potluck this weekend. Pot appetit!
