Red, White and Blue Honey Mustard Potato Salad – Recipe!

Print Friendly

If there’s one thing that says, summer — it’s potato salad and why not make a big batch to share with family and friends on this July fourth holiday.  New potatoes come in a variety of colors and these red, white and blue varietals make potato salad super festive on a day like today.  Honey mustard made with pantry ingredients is my dressing of choice to celebrate such a special day.  The contrasting tangy of mustard and sweet honey coats each and every potato to make it sing with creamy tenderness and give it come pizzazz.

It’s a very simple recipe to make in a jiffy, especially when we have parades and firework shows to get to today.  The potatoes boil up in 20 minutes or less, and a quick mix of my honey mustard dressing and that’s all it takes for a delicious potato salad.  I recommend throwing it together is a seal top bowl for ease of refrigeration and transfer.  Have a great time and enjoy the summertime food, and have a happy 4th of July.
