From the Inside Flap

When it comes to picnics, patio parties, and potlucks, one side dish reigns supreme—potato salad. Creamy or chunky, mellow or tangy, a salad starring spuds is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds—and bring out the best in other foods. This one-of-a-kind cookbook brings you 65 spectacular potato salad recipes—one for every palate and every plate.

Potato salad is as American as the Fourth of July, and inside you'll find lots of home-style recipes, each with a tasty twist that makes it special—Farmer's Market Salad (with peas, sweet onions, and chives), Grilled Potato Salad (with beer and caraway), and Double Tater Salad (with sweet potatoes, raisins, and smoked paprika), to name just a few. But you'll also find tempting tater recipes from around the world, such as German Warm Potato Salad (with bacon and apple cider vinegar) and Potato Salad Olé (with chiles, cumin, and lime juice).

For author Debbie Moose, potato salad is too versatile to disappear during cool weather—and too good to remain a mere side dish. You'll discover more than 25 recipes for "Uptown Taters" that pair perfectly with elegant indoor meals—Tarragon-Lemon Potato Salad, Tuscan Taters (with capers, basil, and sun-dried potatoes), and even Spuds Step Out (with caviar!). And if you're looking for an easy one-dish meal, try a "Spud Supper" such as Potato Salad with Crab or Spring Ham Salad.

Illustrated with more than 35 gorgeous color photographs and featuring savvy tips on selecting and cooking potatoes, Potato Salad is just what you need to rediscover your roots—and put together tasty tater salads for every occasion. So invite some friends, boil some potatoes, and get creative. This spud's for you!

There, Moose learned about the wonderful flavor of fresh ingredients. She earned her degree in journalism from The University of North Carolina and began working as a reporter, first for the Salisbury Post and then for the News & Observer. She combined her interests in food and writing as the editor of the News & Observer’s food section for seven years, during which time it was twice named best section in the U.S. for its circulation category by the Association of Food Journalists.

Format: Hardcover
You might wonder...who needs a cookbook for JUST potato salad? But this book will change your mind. For anyone completely and utterly bored by the picnic and potluck standby, this is the cookbook for you. Filled with lots of pictures, this book is really quite pretty. And it re-imagines the potato salad in so many unique, flavorful ways.

The cookbook also challenges you to step away from the run of them mill reds and russets and experiment with the many colorful varieties available. And there are several wonderful takes on using sweet potatoes as well.

My favorite recipe so far involved new potatoes, fresh corn, cherry tomatoes, and a wonderful basil vinaigrette. It would be so perfect for picnicking because the lack of mayonnaise means that food safety isn't an overwhelming concern.

The summer inspired my family's search, once again, for the "right" potato salad. Yes, we are potato salad snobs and it seems there was no satisfaction (retail or homemade)...until we found these recipes. So far we tried two of them and we are finally satisfied!

This book contains numerous potato salad receipes that you will enjoy making. But I was really looking for versions of the Great American sweet pickle and egg salad. I didn't find that one, but there were many unusual others that merit another look.

I have discovered that while I enjoy the Kindle version the author has limited what the purchaser can copy to a personal note file as in Evernote that I have on my iPad. I can easily read and avoid not having to turn pages while cooking when using the iPad.

The other issue is that the book can't be loaned.
