Summer (sigh) Salads

Rain was in the forecast today and guess what... we didn't get it. Instead we got a glorious, beautiful, sunny blue day! Something happens inside me when the sun is out. You see things like kids on a corner selling lemonade, momma's outside planting flowers and smiling as they watch their little ones play in the yard, and the smell of a bbq filling the air for a neighborhood mile. I truly love the sun and the warmth and summer.

We had a little summer celebrating on Memorial Day and I made two yummy summer salads. Thought I would share them...

The Last Potato Salad Recipe you will ever need!!!
10 red potatoes
10 large eggs
1 cup mayo or miracle whip
1 cup sour cream
mustard (maybe 2 Tbsp)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp pickle relish
Salt and pepper

Clean your potatoes and cut them into cubes
Boil until crisp tender
Drain and allow to cool
In the meantime let's get the eggs cookin'
For a perfect boiled egg every time...
Place eggs in the bottom of a saucepan
Make sure that they are all on the bottom of the pan in one layer
Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 3 minutes
Cover and let the eggs sit in the hot water of 10 minutes
Drain the hot water and replace with ice cold water
Once eggs have cooled you can shell and slice them
Combine potatoes and eggs
In a separate bowl mix the mayo, sour cream and mustard
Fold into the potato and egg
Add salt and pepper to taste
Then add sugar and pickle relish
Once all is combined cover tightly and refrigerate for several hours!
