This is a variation of one of my favorite chicken salad recipes. The recipe I love is just chicken, pasta and mayo. I kicked it up a notch and this one is divine!
Purple Potato Salad
A few weeks ago my little boys and I went grocery shopping together and we NEVER do that. For one, Mommy coupons and needs total concentration at checkout and two, I don't like walking out with things that weren't on my list.
It's just not very thrifty.
You know that Llama, Llama Mad a Momma Book?
Well, that's what I'm afraid of...that tantrum stuff kids pull.
I have to say my kids did fairly well the day they went but I did come home with a sack full of these...
Aren't they gorgeous!
So, what is a mom to do with all these tiny purple potatoes?
Potato Salad of course.
Mashed Potatoes maybe next time.
My husband wanted to know what "they" put it them to make them purple. I think he missed the point that God makes things more beautiful than we can imagine sometimes. My kids didn't miss the point. They loved picking out those beautiful potatoes. I loved cooking them and
I LOVED EATING THEM!
They do have a slightly different flavor than regular potatoes,
more nutty and sweet.
Plus, these babies are Antioxidant Powerhouses!
Here's a link to more information that includes recipes used with these.
