A barbeque and Potato Salad...goes together like Apple Pie and fresh vanilla ice cream!
There's a ton of reasons why many barbeques have potato salad as a side dish. First of course it's delicious. Warm or cold, German or Asian, Mustard based (like this one) or flavored with a salad dressing, dress it up with Bacon, Beans, Corn, Pickles, Tomatoes---Well, you get the idea. Plenty of ways to make a potato salad.
This recipe is a winner in every sense and is always popular whenever I serve it. It has all the classic ingredients, mustard, hard cooked eggs, and onions. But It really gets dressed up with a special spice mix, Sharp Cheddar, and Red Skinned potatoes. It also gets a lil kick from a dollop of BBQ sauce. Give it a try, your friends and family will thank you!
Heat 1" salted water (1 tsp. salt to 1 cup water) to boiling. Add diced potatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and cook till tender; drain. Cool immediately.
Combine all the other ingredients (be sure to reserve some of the spices as toppings/garnish) in stand mixer and mix on low for about three minutes.
While the potatoes are still warm, mix in about 1/4 of the potatoes and 1/4 of the combined mixture in a serving bowl.
Add about 1/2 the remaining potatoes and combined mixture, mix that layer, then repeat for final layer.
Cool in the refrigerator for at least three hours prior to serving, preferably over night for all the flavors to mix mingle and influence.
Just prior to serving, garnish with chives and salad sprinkle
A hint about mixing potato salad---Do it in stages, I mix about 1/4th of the potatoes with a fourth of the combined ingredients, and then repeat until it is gone. This insures a complete mix without mixing so much that the potatoes begin to disintegrate. Makes a better looking, better tasting salad.
This recipe is one of my favorites. I do atypically use a name brand item: McCormick brand Perfect Pitch Roasted garlic & Bell Peppers Salad Sprinkles. It has plenty of seasonings and a wonderful reddish tinge. I found that it adds flavor and contrasting beauty to the salad. You certainly can substitute a variety of your favorite seasonings if you can't find it, and get a similar look by using paprika. But honestly, this is perfect with the Sprinkles!
