Potato Salad with Chives and Onions Recipe

July 16, 2013

When the weather is hot I never really feel like eating very much. Hot meals are not as appealing when the sun is shining outside. My husband still likes a cooked dinner but recently I have been serving hot meals along with potato salad and a green salad. Potato salad makes a ideal side dish along side many things, fish, chicken, steak and also a great accompaniment in a salad. It is also a perfect side dish for barbecues.

You can buy it but really there is no need as it is so simple to make. A fresh potato salad is really tasty and you can add herbs to give it a bit of zing.

This is the recipe I used, the ingredients are a bit random as I just used as much as I thought I would need. You can obviously add more or less depending how many you are cooking for and your personal taste.
