Potatoes are filling and frugal. Plus, a potato salad can be pretty and spring-like! Potato salad can take you right on through summer, in fact. My basic recipe can be tweaked to your tastes. You could use a purple onion just because it looks great. Sour cream is also a simple substitute for the mayo and mustard. Make it yours – but make it often!
