Creamy Fingerling Potato Salad topped with bacon bits and sliced green onions. The lemon juice gives it a hint of tanginess. Great with grilled meats.
Today is Memorial Day and we commemorate the men and women who gave their lives for the cause of freedom so that we can live in peace. America is my adopted country and I am deeply indebted to the sacrifices made on my behalf across many generations past. This morning my younger son will be joining his squadron in honoring the country’s fallen in a ceremony at the city’s park. These ceremonies are often poignant and for many deeply personal because of the loss involved.
This weekend is also the unofficial start to summer with a long break. Families take the opportunity to gather for barbecues and picnics. A smoky aroma wafts through the neighborhood as the men work the grill and enjoy good conversation over a beer. We had our first barbecue for the season on Saturday evening when there was a break in the rainy weather. I made this cold Fingerling Potato Salad to accompany the juicy steak we had. Thumbs up to hubby for doing such a great job at the grill!
