Potato Salad!

Oh my god. Potato Salad. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. For a long time I have just been pulling this recipe out of my ass every time I want to make it, but now I finally had a reason to sit down, and write out the ingredients and the process so that the rest of you can enjoy this little gem.

I mean, I am not usually one to toot my own horn, but this potato salad is king. People LOVE it, which is convenient because it is so damn basic. There is one tiny little ingredient though that just takes its deliciousness over the top. That little secret is curry powder. Curry powder is nothing like the green or red curry you buy in a jar at the grocery store. Curry powder is actually a blend of several spices, ranging from coriander and turmeric to cinnamon, mustard seed, and cardamom. The number and variety of spices used depends on the brand, and of course the country the spice is bottled in. Its flavor is subtle, slightly smokey, and very nicely compliments the other flavors in the salad, and its inexpensive which is also a plus.

So, there you are. My secret is out, and as I said before, all the other ingredients are super basic and consist of celery, onion, pickles or relish, mustard, mayo etc. When it comes to the potatoes it doesnt much matter what kind you use, I prefer red potatoes, but whatever you have on hand is perfectly acceptable.

Now go. Make this recipe, and ENJOY!!
