Hey there! I’m here with another barbecue recipe for you all. Okay potato salad can be eaten anytime, but since July 4th/Independence Day is approaching we are going to call it a barbecue recipe.

That’s what we do for “The 4th” right. Pull out the barbecue grill, gather family and friends around, make a few cocktails and it’s a good time!

Potato Salad

Too bad I live within the city limits and can’t pop my own firecrackers. I remember when I was a kid, we would go to my mom’s hometown in Alabama for the 4th every now and then.

My family lived in a small town in the country so we could pop as many firecrackers as we pleased.

 

My big cousins would pop them and we would all run like scary cats lol. Then we would turn around and be in awe of how beautiful they were. Those were good times!

 

My grandfather would smoke a hog for everyone to eat, my mom and her sisters would make potato salad, baked beans, you name it!

A barbecue is not a barbecue without potato salad. Everyone loves it, but if nothing else it’s tradition.

 

And tradition creates the memories that I shared with you today. And at the end of the day, that’s all that really matters!

 

Enjoy!
