Hot Sauce Potato Salad

Hot Sauce Potato Salad

My hand quivered slightly as I held the bottle of hot sauce over the bowl of potato salad.  A bead of sweat slowly dripped down my forehead.  The kitchen was dead silent.  All you could hear was the sound of my tummy growling.

My husband said “No, don’t do it!”

I tilted my head in his direction, and I called his bluff.  Hot Sauce is going in.

Why didn’t someone think of this before now?  Tangy, spicy, pickle-y and wow.  This potato salad recipe has it all. Potato salad with classic creaminess and crunch and a pop of big hot sauce flavor.

Not only did we use a generous amount of hot sauce, but we kicked up the heat with fresh jalapeno, ground black pepper, and cayenne, too.

Because some like it hot.

Roasted Potato Salad

Yeah, we have a "thing" for potatoes. Call it recipe love. Roasted Potato Salad is yummy and summery and the potatoes have a perfect bite. Never mushy.

Roasted Potato Salad….yes! So delicious, and a little different than the normal mushy potato salad (although I have nothing against potatoes in any format). This salad has a deeper roasted flavor, the potatoes are more firm, and the skins make it a little more….country.

I also had something in the oven baking, so I took advantage of that heat and electricity by popping the potatoes in at the same time.
