Make Potato Salad for the Fourth of July!

BlogHer Original Post

Eating potato salad on the Fourth of July is a tradition for families all over America. In my own family, my sister Sandee's potato salad is legendary, and every summer people request that she make it when the family gets together. Even though people have their own ideas about potato salad, the variations are infinite. For the holiday coming up next week, food bloggers are giving us some creative potato salad ideas.

Patriotic Potato Salad

Let's start with the Patriotic Potato Salad at Food Blogga, where Susan has used white, red-skinned, and All-blue potatoes to make a salad that's really perfect for the Fourth of July.

Rachel at Fresh Approach Cooking created Roasted Potato Salad when she needed a party dish and realized her hostess was not a fan of cucumbers. Another warm potato salad I think sounds great is the Warm Roasted Fennel and Potato Salad from Daily Unadventures in Cooking.

Red Potato Salad

Potato salad can be a nightmare for people with food allergies, but the Champagne Vinegar Potato Salad from Karina's Kitchen not only looks delicious, but it's gluten-free, soy-free, egg-free, and dairy-free. For a slightly different take on an allergy friendly potato salad, try Karina's Horseradish Spiked Red Potato Salad.

Kristen at The Kitchen Sink is not usually a fan of potato salad, but she has second thoughts when she uses Greek yogurt and yukon gold potatoes to make Creamy Potato Salad with Chives and Peas. Other potato salads using yogurt include the Yogurt and Herb Two Potato Salad from Rachel at Coconut and Lime and Potato Salad with Labneh and Herbs at The Backyard Pizzeria.

Potato Salad with Tuna

Sue Bette at Feel Good Eats says she likes recipes that are a little off beat, and I guess I do too because her recipe for Potato Salad with Tuna looks fantastic to me.

Finally, if you want to spice up your holiday, try the Jalapeno Potato Salad from White Trash Barbecue.

(If none of these potato salads are what you're looking for, you can find endless more potato salad variations from food bloggers by looking for potato salad recipes at Food Blog Search.)

Blogher Food and Drink contributing editor Kalyn Denny also blogs at Kalyn's Kitchen, where she never cooks potatoes, but does make a lot of salads with tomatoes and cilantro.
