I have given up trying to replicate the potato salad my Granny J always made. Since she really didn't enjoy cooking, I'm sure it was a fairly basic recipe but after years of making it, it was probably tweaked to her own specs. So after a few years of trying to make it the same way, I have decided to make it MY way.
Or my wayS - because I am still tweaking, because I like to make side dishes that enhance the main dish and because I don't like to make things the same way twice, I will probably never develop an exact recipe that can be linked to me. But the recipe you see below is my basic recipe and the pepper and onions can easily be removed, manipulated and changed to look like a totally different dish the next time.
This night I used the roasted pepper and green onion for a slightly smoky flavor with only a hint of heat. It was perfect with Rum Beans.
