July 4th is this weekend and we are ready for some BBQ and potato salad! The potatoes in this week’s share are from Taylor Farm in Lexington. They are a fingerling variety, and were organically grown about 15 miles away from us.
Here’s our family’s favorite potato salad recipe. Traditionally, we serve it mashed and warm, but you could also leave the potatoes in chunks and serve it cold; it’s great either way!
6-8 fingerling potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons dill relish
2 teaspoons mustard
1 boiled egg, diced
Garlic salt and pepper, to taste
Chop potatoes and boil in water until tender. Drain and return to pot. Add butter and mayonnaise. Mash. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve warm. Serves 2-4. Enjoy!
