Leslie Miller of Blythe’s Blog has plenty of red, white, and blue spirited recipes for your 4th of July celebration!
I catered an event for 100 people. I was asked to make potato salad. Making potato salad makes me nervous! People are very particular about their potato salad and making it for 100 is tricky. I used 3 kinds of potatoes – red, purple and white. I did this so I did not have to peel them (all 16 pounds!). Fortunately, I had the foresight to boil the purple (our blue in the red, white, and blue) ones separately! They would have turned the entire dish a grayish or blueish tinge. I scaled the recipe down for you! This is a very simple and basic recipe, but it ended up being a big hit!

Step it up a notch on 4th of July this year! Make some interesting condiments for burgers and dogs. I have recipes for honey mustard and chipotle mayo sauces. The Comeback Sauce is a southern recipe, known as the ‘queen mother’ of sauces! It’s extremely popular in Jackson, Mississippi — it’s great on salads, but also as a dip for all sorts of meats… it’s sort of similar to Thousand Island but much, much better!
