    Tater Salad/How yours??

    O.K. Daps and I had some friends over the other night,BBQ chicken,Rotel beans ,and "Tater Salad",easy meal ,right??? WRONG.There were 4 of us,the 2 "company" dont like seasonings----PERIOD. No onion,no bell pepper,no nothing,just eggs,mayo,and potatoes,(1st batch),Daps hates bell pepper,loves onion,(second batch),ME,??I love mine with bell pepper,onion(plenty) green onion,celery,bacon bits,sprinkle of garlic,little salt,and plenty of black pepper.

    Of course all of the above include the basics of potatoes,boiled eggs, and mayo (with a very slight touch of mustard),mostly what I am curious about is the seasonings you use.Am I the weird one---or them????

    I never use any seasonings for my salads. Being an amoeba grown in a test tube in an experiment gone horribly wrong, I'm rather sensitive to strong tastes!

    When it comes to seasoning, I love it. I like having lots of flavor mixed together.

    When it comes to condiments, I hate it. I rarely eat anything with mayo, ketchup, BBQ sauce, salad dressing, etc on it. I'll dip stuff in BBQ sauce, but I don't like stuff smothered in it. And I put a very light amount of dressing on salads. I will have certain foods like burgers, hot dogs, brats, etc with mustard.

    I only eat mayo in tuna and potato salad. And when it comes to potato salad, it needs to be heavy on the mustard to drown out the disgustingness of the mayo.

    I also never eat ketchup, but I can eat tomatos like apples...wierd right?

    Potatoes, hard boiled egg, miracle whip, mustard, and some pickle relish. That's about all I put in mine. However, I eat what's served, and if it's at someone else's home I NEVER complain about the cooking.

    This tater salad is very unusual but friggin awsome:

    1 bag Oreida hash browns
    1 onion minced or chopped
    1 pkg cream cheese
    2 sticks of butter
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    Cornflakes

    Defrost hashbrowns, soften cream cheese, soften 1 stick of butter.
    Mix ingrediants in dish.
    Bake 1 Hour at 350
    Add cornflakes as topping with 1 stick melted butter the last 15 minutes of baking

    you will have though you died and went to heaven


    my favorite classic potatoe salad:
    Boil 6 small potatoes, cube
    Add 1 cup chopped celery, green pepper
    Saute onion, 4 slices of bacon, chopped

    Add:
    1-1/2 tsp. flour
    1 tsp. dry mustard
    1/2 cup vinegar
    1/2 cup sugar

    Mix together. Before serving, chop 2 hard boiled eggs and add with salt and pepper

    Potato Salad

    Plenty of Salad Dressing - Miracle Whip preferably light
    Salt and Black Pepper - Easy on the salt and pepper
    Boiled Eggs
    Potatoes - Idaho
    Chopped Onion - sweet or white onion
    Chopped Celery
    Shredded carrots

    Sometimes a bit of mustard - Yellow Mustard or Stadium Mustard
    Sometimes a tablespoon or 2 of pickle juice
    Sometimes a few sprinkles of parsley
    Sometimes a few sprinkles of paprika
    Sometimes chopped green onions

    I don't think I've ever had it with bits of bacon or garlic.
    I'll have to try it with bell peppers. Now that sounds like a great addition to mine. Mmmmm!

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    I'm pretty much open minded - I love potato salad in pretty much every configuration I have had it.

    My only preference is for peeled potatos - I had it once with unpeeled and it was still good, but the texture was wrong.

    I use "Watkins" potato salad seasoning, mayo, sour cream and sweet pickle relish...
    I always get rave reviews.

    potatos
    eggs
    onion
    mayo

    potatos, onion and eggs marinate (preferably overnight) in italian salad dressing made with ******** ******* for extra flavoring. Mayo added next day (usually a few hours before serving for proper setting) along with paprika, black pepper and red pepper. Sometimes add bacon to mine as well

    My recipe, never misses:

    Her potato salad is unfrickenbelieveable scrumptidelicious!

    One thing though, I don't like mustard in potato salad for some reason.

    Warm German Potato Salad....yum.

    30 minutes

    Ingredients:

    Potatoes - 2 pounds
    Onions - 1 large white onions
    Bacon - 1 pound
    Vinegar - 6 tablespoons or to taste
    Oil - 1/3 cup
    Boullion - 1 cube beef or vegetable boullion
    Green Onions - I bundle
    Parsley - 2 tablespoons
    Brown Mustard - (according to your taste) - 3 tablespoons
    Preparation:

    Boil peeled or skins-on (according to your preference) potatoes in water and boullion for 15-20 minutes. (This may take longer if you are at high altitude). Don't let them get to soft - a fork should go in but the potatoes should not fall apart.
    Fry bacon and crumble bacon into small pieces.
    Dice the white onion and fry it in the bacon grease.
    Chop the potatoes into cubes.
    Mix the bacon, white onion, oil, mustard, and vinegar together in a bowl that will be large enough to hold your potatoes.
    Chop the green onions.
    Toss the cooled potatoes in your sauce along with the green onions.
    Sprinkle with parsley, salt and pepper to taste.

    Potatoes
    Crispy white Onion (lots of it)
    Mustard (lots of it)
    a small amount of Mayo
    Some boiled egg
    Sweet pickle relish
    Louisiana Hot Sauce (enough to tint it red). Tobasco sauce is too hot for this - Need the vinegarry type that's half the price)
    Sliced green olives with pimento stuffing
    Extra dry ground mustard to taste

    Anyone admitting to liking that mass-produced Deli stuff, with their frozen & rethawed taters, Miracle Whip, and soggy onions looses their tater salad license
