Copy-Cat Recipe

You may recall that I've mentioned my love for Red, Hot & Blue's Potato Salad a time or twenty!  My friend Jennifer located a copy-cat recipe online last weekend and e-mailed it to me.  Of course I had to make it immediately!

It has a shockingly small amount of ingredients to be so good!  I'll post the recipe I copied below, but I'll just let you know that I didn't really measure anything when making mine...

First, I steamed some Red Potatoes
While those were steaming, I boiled some eggs.  Then I chopped up those eggs and some green onions.
Once the potatoes were ready, I chopped them up into chunks.  Then I mixed in the mayonnaise, stirred in the onions, eggs and celery seed.
Thankfully, Red, Hot & Blue Potato Salad is served room temperature, so I didn't have to wait for it to chill! 

I served it up with some Fried Chicken (cold by the cold fried chicken!) and dug in!  Yum-O!

Here's the Recipe I copied with my notes to the side:

2- 2 1/2 lbs. boiled red-skinned potatoes, skin on (this is where I jumped the tracks...First, I forgot to weigh the potatoes, so I hadn't a clue how many I was cooking up, but I used 7 good sized red potatoes, and I steamed them instead.  I think steaming made them less mushy than boiling would have)

6 eggs- (No way do you need 6 eggs unless you'd rather have egg salad with potatoes instead of potato salad with eggs.  I used 3 eggs~whites of all three, only the yolk of two)

1 bunch of diced green onions- only the green parts (I believe that RH&B uses some of the actual onion too, so I used two actual onions and then an additional amount of green tops)

generous 1/2 cup real mayonnaise (I used low-fat mayonnaise 'cause that was all I had.  Real Mayonnaise would probably be better.  I didn't measure at all, I just plopped it on until it looked right, but it was probably a "generous 1/2 cup", whatever in the heck that means)

3/4 tsp. celery seed (I did measure this, because you really don't want too much celery seed)

In my opinion, it also needs some salt and pepper, but I just added salt and pepper to taste on my individual serving.  As I mentioned, serve at room temperature and Enjoy!

Oh my gosh - that fried chicken and potato salad combo looks so good! I always like a little bit of spices and cilantro in mine too - yum!

I'll be sure to do an apartment tour someday when I have time to clean up! :)
