Potato salad is almost always synonymous with casual outdoor picnics and summertime comfort food. Well, hold onto your spuds, because Barbara Lauterbach's Potato Salad: Fifty Favorite Recipes will change the way you view this standard
accompaniment. Potato Salad features many variations of family recipes, from the New Year's Day Good Luck Salad, with traditionally Southern black-eyed peas, to the Rosemary Orange Potato salad, with an elegant citrus twist and enough class to serve at
any formal luncheon. The book is divided into five sections, and one of the most unusual and fun chapters is dedicated to international potato salads. Here you'll find salads featuring various seafood, imported meats, and cheeses, such as the Stop and Go
Italian Potato Salad and the Niçoise Potato Salad. Accompanying many of the recipes are colorful photos of the finished product to provide additional inspiration and presentation ideas. Potato Salad will satisfy your starchy comfort-food cravings while
providing unique hot and cold salads that serve as main courses or side dishes any time of year. --Teresa Simanton
