4th of July, Labor Day

Red White and Blue Recipe Round Up

Leslie Miller of Blythe’s Blog has plenty of red, white, and blue spirited recipes for your 4th of July celebration!

Red White and Blue Potato Salad

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!

Homemade Gourmet Condiments

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!
