About Red, White and Blue Potato Salad

Getting in the mood for the holiday I thought I would share my recipes for this classic 4th of July dish. It makes the perfect side dish for any 4th of July party, cookout, or picnic. I like my a bit on the spicy side but if you do not, feel free to leave out the mustard . Even though this dish is normally side just for 4th of July. I love it so much I sever it all year around. Not only dose it look grate on a plate but it taste so good. It is a prefect dish to take to a BBQ or on a picnic, and kids always get a kick out of the bright colors.
