well hello summer | creamy potato salad

Summer is here.

It has been hitting the 90's here in STL for the past few days.  And it will get even warmer over this long Memorial Day weekend.  Summer excitedly showed up... the hot temp, the humidity, and of course cooling down by having Ted Drew's frozen custard, all reminders of the change in season here in the Midwest.

Maybe I am still in denial that summer is here... but there's no stopping it... So to help you cool down and enjoy your Memorial Day party, I am sharing my Creamy Potato Salad.  This is the perfect side dish with your grilled faves.  And if you are looking for a barbecue inspiration my Barbecue Ribs ala St. Louis  is featured on DailyBuzz Moms Top 9 Yummy BBQ Inspiration. Thank you for the feature Daily Buzz Moms!


Creamy Potato Salad with Orange Zest

Ingredients:
3 large potatoes (boiled and cubed)
3 pcs eggs (boiled, peeled and sliced)
3 tbsp rounded mayo
3/4 tbsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1 stalk celery (minced)
1/2 onion (chopped)

Direction

Mix mayo and sugar thoroughly in a mixing bowl.  Add celery and onions.  Mix them well together.  Add potatoes and eggs.  Mix until the potatoes are well coated.  Sprinkle orange rinds.  Mix well and refrigerate.  Serve cold.  It's that simple, yet it's definitely summer in your mouth!  Enjoy!

    1. i thought of putting orange zest instead of bacon bits for a change. I had lots of bacon lately and my doctor is not laughing anymore so I have to change haha.

  4. Wow I've never tried potato salad with the orange zest. I've been making Japanese potato salad but it's time to make a change!

  8. Have you tried putting beets in your potato salad? Do you think it works with the orange zest?
    Thanks for sharing your lovely recipes. Have a great Sunday.

    1. Hi Ann,
      I remember my FIL and MIL's potato salad had beets on it and it's called Russian Potato Salad. Honestly I haven't tried putting orange zests on a Russian Potato Salad yet but I think the flavor work well together. What the orange zest do is to give the salad a hint of orange. The taste is not overpowering or anything like that. Thank you for asking ANn. If ever you do, please share it with us here in STM.
      Thanks,
      Malou

  15. Mmmm, looks might good. And you're so right about the weather - it's been beastly! But this looks like just the thing to cool me down. Good job - thanks.

  16. Hi, Malou! I enjoyed your post about the luxurious salon - of course I was jealous:) But we need pampering from time to time and I don't begrudge you the indulgence:)
    I rarely make creamy potato salads even though I like them. Our Serbian version is sans may, just a bit of oil, vinegar, red onions and lots of black pepper (much easier:)
    But I love all mayo-based salads, especially with eggs:)
    Love the addition of orange zest!
    (Is the youngest one back for the summer yet?)

  17. I love potato salad, and this twist with orange zest certainly sounds interesting. :) Looks good, too!

  18. How did I miss this post? It looks soooo good! I was looking for your dinengdeng recipe because I have some fresh spinach and now I find something even more delightful. I also have all these ingredients onhand. So should I make your potato salad? Or the dinengdeng? Both are good, so I'll do them all. Thanks for sharing, Malou!
