Warm Caesar Potato Salad: You've Never Had Potato Salad Like This Before!

Potato Salad has always been one of my favorite side dishes.

When I was growing up I'd always add a little bucket of this yummy goodness (usually the mustard variety) to the basket whenever I was with my mom at the grocery store.

There's just something about the combination of ingredients in potato salad that make it almost irresistible, even though these days I don't want to be eating a few of the ingredients in most store-bought potato salad.

So when I found this recipe for home-made potato salad I was excited.

I could use organic potatoes (which are better because root veggies absorb whatever chemicals and toxins are in the soil like sponges).

I could use home-made mayonnaise (better because I have yet to find a store-bought mayonnaise that doesn't include either GMO canola or soy oils).

And I could customize it however I liked and make it over and over again, and feel good about what I was eating and feeding my family.

I also like that it's warm. Even though it's summer and the season of salads, I don't like to eat super cold foods (I got out of the habit after my acupuncturist explained how cold foods can affect people with cold body types, which I and most other women apparently have). So I like it better than refrigerated potato salad for that reason as well.

So I tried this recipe and it was a big hit at my house: it's delicious! Try it and let us know what you think!
