Bon Appetit!

Add some spice to your life with this recipe from Donna, an amazing friend and gifted teacher in France. She wrote:

This is the Potato Salad recipe passed on to me by my mother, a former businesswoman, for whom cooking was not so much a fine art as an exact science, so everything had to be measured precisely! Fortunately, she often doubled the recipe, which left some hope for anyone who happened to pop in unexpectedly -or for somebody like me who finds it tastes even better the second time around a day or two later!

Any resemblance with love and romance is not in the least fortuitous! So, my fellow potato salad lovers, it's time to hop out of bed and get cooking!

(a) Combine in a large bowl 5 cups cooked diced potatoes, 1 small onion chopped fine, 1 cup diced celery (stalk + leaves)

(b) Sprinkle with 1 teaspoonful iodized salt

(c) Make dressing with 1 teaspoonful salt, 1 tablespoonful vinegar, 3 tablespoonfuls oil, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoonful Tabasco (or other hot pepper sauce)

(d) Add dressing to ingredients in bowl, toss lightly and chill.

This recipe makes enough for 4 people with a healthy appetite for the good things in life!

Bon app├ętit!

Donna
