We’ve finally reached that time of year where picnics abound.  Whether it’s a family reunion, a weekend party, or a middle of the week picnic with parents and kids, it’s time to bring out the summer basics of outdoor parties and picnics. Nothing shouts picnic like potato salad. This is a recipe that your kids can participate in the making process. Once the potatoes are boiled and cut, it is time for the kids to front and center and measure, add, stir and finally pour just in time to place on a platter.

I like my potato salad on a platter so I can garnish with a mini veggie tray. Combines everything onto one plate and nice eye appeal.
By the way, those Black Paper Lanterns, they’re from Shindigz!

Carbo’s Family Potato Salad
4 large white potatoes
1 T salt
4 cups of water
In a large sauce pan, bring your salt and water to a boil and add potatoes. Cook potatoes for about 20 minutes. Turn the stove off and remove the potatoes from the stove. Remove potatoes and allow to cool down and dry. Once they do, cut the potato into inch slices and inch segments again. Allow to cool completely. Place on platter.
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup yellow mustard
1 tsp salt
1 T ground pepper
1/2 cup pickle relish
Mix all items together in a bowl. Taste. You may like your dressing with more zip so add more mustard. You may want it more creamy, add a bit more mayonnaise.  Pour the mixture over the potatoes on the platter. Garnish plate with your favorite vegetables.
This recipe is 4-6 people, depending on appetites and what other food is served!

Carbo and his partner travel to sample and learn regional and cultural differences in food. The experiences allow him to make new and exciting recipes that can be reproduce in your own home using every day products and equipment in a short amount of time. Carbo provides private cooking lessons, authored his first cookbook and keeps a highly interactive Facebook page that showcases food-talk and fun.
