Just finished whipping up some potater salad for the weekend. My favorite Friday activity is CWP – that’s Cooking While Podcasting in case you didn’t know! I wasn’t raised on potato salad, so here’s my first go at it. I used red potatoes and scallions from my local co-op box!
UPDATE (5 days later):
this is delicious.
Add more salt.
Don’t eat 5 days in a row.
Things get stinky.
