No barbecue is complete without a bowl of delicious potato (or pasta) salad on the picnic table. Potato salad is a dish that’s typically made from boiled potatoes, sometimes- chopped veggies—like onions or celery—and some sort of creamy dressing that’s usually mayonnaise- or vinegar-based. This recipe is simple with few ingredients. The tarragon and chives in the creamy dressing gives this potato salad a unique flavor. It is still mild in nature and complements any meal. Add this potato salad recipe to your list of summer must makes!
