Our local culture are not potato salad fanatic. Not for anything else, this is only because of a struggling economy. Because we can’t be picky in terms of food, we eat what is being served to us. Our definition of food hasn’t gone beyond taste and so our imagination is only limited to what we have been eating over and over again. But hey, I am here to only tell you of my experience with this Potato Salad. We are used to salads as only desserts, sweet and uber sweet. 🙂 When I first tasted this delectable treat, I fell in love with it. Only that it was ordered by my former boss in an exclusive Casino Español restaurant. Pretty delicious at a hefty price and to add, one cannot order if one is not a member or know someone who is a member. Darn, not very accessible to commoners like me after all! 😀
My love of cooking and baking started when I became a mom, since birth and from the time I turned 28 I only go to the kitchen to eat. Well, from birth to 3 years old I am not sure where or how my mom fed me. Haha! I can’t remember when I started subscribing to AllRecipes.com newsletter but I did because I loved their simple home recipes. One day, I opened my mail and I saw a picture of the potato salad. Not exactly like that first one I tasted but I know in my taste bud they resembled. With all my might, I went to the market and bought the 5 simple ingredients and prepared it. I wasn’t even thinking if my family would eat it, I just wanted to prepare it. Right after mixing the onions, I had my husband taste them. I crossed my fingers because my brother who had a glimpse at it said it doesn’t look good. Then my husband said it was delicious and that it’s the only confirmation that matters to me.
The Good Old Potato Salad was a hit with me, my father, stepmom and hubby. The kids don’t like it because they want the sweet salad that they were used to. It made me happy that I now have a new salad recipe. It’s simple, delicious and light.
