Memorial Day…..the official start to summer……..and it’s usually cool and almost always rainy. But that will not stop the festivities of the long weekend with its BBQ’s, picnics, and camping.
It didn’t stop me from making Baby Red Potato Salad. I have been making my potato salad this way for years and never wrote the recipe down……until today. Over the years it has been tweaked numerous times……I think I have it down pat!
