potato salad

after spending most of the day volunteering at Imagine RIT last weekend, burgers on the grill and this potato salad were perfect end to a hectic day. don't get me wrong, there were some cool projects on display, but the people. they were everywhere. i later heard they exceeded expectations by 8,000 people - instead of the 25,000, 32,000 people attended. insanity.

anyway, back to the potato salad. i'm actually not a huge fan. i mean, i like it, i'm just not in love with it. but who could resist this -

me "so what do you want for dinner this weekend?"
jason "oh my god, potato salad. i would love potato salad"
me "really?"
jason "yea, all i want is a giant bowl of it."

so i caved. and went to my old standby - joy of cooking. it seems like if i can't find a good recipe in one of the other dozen or so cookbooks i have, there are always a couple versions in the joy of cooking that look good. this time i wanted something basic so i went with good old american potato salad. and it didn't disappoint.
