My Favourite Salads

Potato Salad with Green Onions and Chives myfavouritepastime.com_7869You must be wondering, ‘what is with her and potato salads?‘ I thought she just posted a Potato and Corn Salad and now what? Oh yes I still have my bag of potatoes and so one week down the line it was time for another potato salad and I wasn’t feeling too innovative. That mayonnaise bottle has to be cleared and what about the left over chives and green onions from making these Cheese and Chive Scones and the left over green onions from these Sweet Potato Bacon and Cheese Muffins…and I say am watching my waist? Hilarious.
