Are you trying to squeeze every last drop of summer
out like we are?
How many picnics and BBQs and pool parties
can we fit in before the weather turns on us?
This French Country Potato Salad is
my all-time favorite potato salad.
It goes so well with my tablescape and
post yesterday - French Country Dining.
Sometimes I refer to this as the "Everything but the
kitchen sink" potato salad as you will see when you
see the list of ingredients.
It is a variation from an old church cookbook
that my aunt in Wisconsin gave me 25 years
ago. Don't you just love church cookbooks
with everyone's family favorite recipes in them?
Of course potatoes are the base...
But then we add cabbage - yes cabbage, carrots, pickles
green pepper, pimiento, onions, mayo,
and yummy dijon mustard.
It has such a healthy and refreshing crunch to it.
French Country Potato Salad Recipe
4 C. cooked diced potatoes (skins on)
1 1/2 C. roughly shredded cabbage
1/2 C. shredded carrots
1/2 C. chopped dill pickle
1/4 C. chopped onion
1/4 C. chopped green pepper
1 T. white vinegar
1 T. dijon mustard

1 tsp. black pepper
3/4 - 1 C. mayonaise
Mix everything together while potatoes
are still warm. Stir and cover and

This recipe makes about 8 nice sized

So fun presented in half pint canning jars.
Keep enjoying summer as long as you can.
