Patriotic Potato Salad

PhotobucketNothing says Fourth of July like American flags flying high, platters full of red white and blue foods with matching home décor and piles of charred meats hot off the grill.  Since grilled meats need side dishes, potato salad (the king of all comfort foods) plays the perfect companion to any hot dog, next to the bun, of course.

This Fourth of July, I made a traditional American potato salad with Potato Inspiration’s Celebration Blend (a mix of purple, red and honey gold potatoes), which I found at my local supermarket.

The results were very colorful and delicious!
