Thanks Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas for hosting this spudtacular event!

I love potatoes! I could eat them at every meal.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy potatoes is in potato salad.

German Style Potato or in my case, PA Dutch style contains eggs, mayo and mustard.  Red Skinned Potato Salad is usually oil and vinegar based.

Both are delicious but I wanted to make something a bit different!

Bloody Mary Potato Salad infused all the great tastes of the cocktail without the alcohol.

Yukon Gold Potatoes with tomato, celery, bacon and horseradish. Just a squirt of lemon and dash of hot sauce for good measure.

Enjoy a bowl with a real Bloody Mary if you like!

    8. Great choice of ingredients, Cindy. Must say I lean towards Japanese as well as American mayo for potato salad….Your intro of hot sauce to the mix looks to be spot on…As this is a Virgin Bloody Mary Potato Salad, might it be the perfect remedy for a hangover? =)

    9. Very inventive use of the potato! Love your twist on a traditional potato salad.
