Potato Salad-off!

Not off as in bad, -off as in competition. Hmm. That may not have been the best idea.

Anyway.

How do you make yours?

I've loved potato salad all my life. My mother's one is a standard American one, I suspect.

Boiled new potatoes. The dressing is mayo and orange or lemon juice (sometimes I put in both for the hell of it). Also salt, pepper, oregano, fresh parsley, paprika, celery seeds. I finely chop celery, olives and pickles and stick them in too. Mix while the potatoes are still hot, so they absorb the dressing.

*Orgasmic potato salad groan*

'Don't make too much', says Axl. Ha! Fool. Little does he understand my capacity for potato salad.

I've never put any sort of fruit juice in my potato salad. Mostly I make it like you do besides that. But not olives- sweet pickle relish. And not oregano. And always chopped boiled egg.
Can we stop talking about potato salad now? Jeez.

You started it.

I like the tang the citrus gives it, sort of sour-sweet-creamy.

I never make it. I just leech off other people. I make a good tartare sauce, though.

I only refer to scotch eggs as orgasmic
