Delicious Potato Salad!

026

It’s been several months since I last tried a new recipe. I nearly gave up when my last dish was over cooked, ill measured, and not seasoned very well. But I didn’t give up just because I slaughtered a few dishes earlier this year. I saw this amazing potato salad recipe on YouTube and I had to give it a try. Thankfully I was attentive, and it turned out really good!

It’s no surprise I managed to swing this one because it was so easy! The only part of this meal that required a little more attention than others, was keeping the potatoes from over cooking and becoming mushy. Since I didn’t use frozen potatoes, I simply sliced them into cubes, put them in a pot, added water, placed them over medium high heat, and allowed them to boil for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, as I was cooking, Style Network was airing old reruns of Sex and the City – by the way I adore that show. I was feeling good zoning in and out from the show. Then back to chopping and mixing and letting the stresses of the day simply melt away…

I found this tasty recipe on Foody Tuby! Right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbCA_L24sBg

I made a few modifications as follows:

3 Small Golden Potatoes

2 Cups of Boiled Shrimp

1/3 Cup of Mayonnaise

1 Teaspoon of Mustard

1 Tablespoon of Sweet Green Relish

3 Boiled Eggs

2 Cups of Boiled Shrimp

4 Tablespoons of Minced Green Onions

1 Cup of Chopped Celery

Smidgen of Salt

Pinch of Grounded Black Pepper

Smidgen of Paprika for decoration

Servings 4 – 5
