Pinterest Party & Link-up (vol 38): Country Potato Salad

Pin. Create. Inspire. Pinterest Party & Link-up. (pinterest_logo_new_640)

I was hoping to switch up my entry into the Pinterest Party by doing something other than a recipe but time is short and no matter how busy I am, I’ve still gotta cook! So it’s another recipe, but at least it’s a tasty one.

The inspiration for this recipe came from Gina at SkinnyTaste.com. I changed the recipe to suit my family’s taste.

Revolution of Love - Country Potato Salad (pp_pot_salad_1)In gathering the ingredients, it has been fun to pick herbs and vegetables from our little garden on the deck. This is the first year that we have actually yielded produce, mainly because I put the boys in charge of watering. (I have a knack for forgetting to water and killing everything. LOL.) The boys were excited when they could pick their first tomatoes for a salad.

Revolution of Love - Country Potato Salad - (pp_pot_salad_3)It was a proud feeling that made me understand why people had gardens. I’ve always been a “why bother if you can just buy it at the market” but now I’ve begun to understand why people bother!

  • This looks so tasty! I will be pinning this to try soon. We have had a garden the past 4 summers, and it is so fun! Usually, we have a great harvest for making salsa. But this year we got so much rain that it killed almost everything – we’re so bummed. But the strawberries did great in the spring…and there’s always next year! What all did you plant this year? I’ll link up our fave “garden recipes”! Thanks for hosting! And you should link this party up with us today for Tuesday Talk – it starts at 8am EST. This would be perfect šŸ™‚ -Jess, http://www.sweetlittleonesblog.com

      Thanks for linking up! I like them all but I have to say that your salsa recipe looks so good! I pinned it and want to give it a try. I never made salsa that way and it looks delicious. We have the opposite of too much rain – we are in a drought. We kept out little garden small – tomatoes (our first time trying), bell peppers (but they are growing super slow), parsley, basil and cilantro. I love cilantro but I can never get it to grow as well as the parsley. I honestly know nothing about gardening (other than don’t forget to water) so I need a read a gardening basis for dummies book to know how to feed and tend to it etc. At least now it feels like a doable project. šŸ™‚ I’ll be sure to link up with your Tuesday Talk. Fun! šŸ™‚

  • Bobbi, I pinned the recipe. It looks great and I can’t wait to try it. Your photos make it look even more mouth-watering!
