Potato Salad

Have you ever had Famous Dave's Sweet & Spicy pickle chips?  They are delicious and I had the idea to use the pickle juice in potato salad.  I know, pickle juice in potato salad is hardly a new idea but using this flavored pickle juice was new to ME. 

There are probably about 1,000,000 ways to make potato salad. There is no right or wrong way, just many, many different opinions.  I love adding lots of veggies in my potato salad.  Add however much you want and take out what you don't like. That's the beauty of a good potato salad. Make it your way. 

Potato Salad Recipe

7 - 8 mid sized potatoes
6 tbsp. pickle juice (I used Famous Daves Sweet & Spicy)
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 cup onions, chopped
3/4 cup celery, chopped
3/4 cup cucumbers, chopped
1/3 cup carrots, finely chopped
1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tbsp. honey mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring a pot of water to boil.  Add the potatoes.  Simmer until done, remove from pot and cool slightly. Take skins off if you want, I didn't.  Cut into small cubes. 

Put potatoes into a large bowl.  Add the juice from the pickles.  Add the veggies.  Mix carefully.  In a separate small bowl, mix mayo with mustard, add salt and pepper to taste.  Mix in the dressing with the potato mixture.  Taste and salt and pepper to taste.
