Mashed Potato Salad Recipe @Gimmiefreebies_Recipes

Last month we went to Arkansas and Texas to bring my mother-in-law to a bluegrass festival. While there we enjoyed all the southern cooking, sweet tea, and I actually got to try something new that I fell in love with:  Mashed Potato Salad!!  Forgive me, I’m from Wisconsin originally and had never tried this. All I can say is YUM!

It’s basically the same as regular potato salad, but you mash the potatoes before you mix them in. Cook them a little firmer than mashed potatoes so they’re not mushy. The South seems to be torn on whether to use mayonnaise or Miracle Whip, so I used half of each.

When I cook, I like to try new things, so I may never make something the same twice.  It’s also hard to write down what I’ve done! Anyway, give this a try. It would be great for your summer barbecues. If you like potato salad, you’ll love this!
