wingin’ it. [creamy potato salad]

July 7th, 2017 by | comments

Some of my favorite days are spent in the kitchen cooking with my mom. Last year, we were preparing for a summer picnic and tasked with making a potato salad to accompany the rest of the BBQ food. After scouring the Internet for recipes, we finally decided to wing it and make up our own. This recipe is the result of that and it’s been a staple in our family ever since. I recently brought this potato salad to a 4th of July BBQ where it was a hit. Luckily, I made way too much, so we had tons of leftovers!

My fiancé and I ate this lasagna for dinner and brought the rest to work for lunch the remainder of the week. The ground turkey and vegetables provide a delicious alternative to the classically prepared lasagna with beef.

True life: I’m addicted to pimento cheese dip. Spread this decadent dip atop freshly sliced French bread, dunk a tortilla chip into the cheesy concoction, smooth it on a warm hamburger patty or smear it between two slices of bread for an over-the-top grilled cheese — the possibilities are endless.
