I am a firm believer in having your cake and eating it too, especially when it comes to potatoes. And in the case of this warm mashed potato salad, I get to have all the comfort food deliciousness of my beloved mashed potatoes, while also adding some of the zingy taste of summery potato salad. You can serve this fun side dish either warm or at room temperature, depending on what kind of a side dish mood you are in. It’s the ultimate easy, flexible summer side dish, and I have a feeling you are going to love every bite. Ready to cook up your new favorite approach to potatoes? Let’s make it!
With the empty nest that we have going at our house these days, certain recipes are more of a challenge to make. Whole lasagnas, big casseroles of macaroni and cheese and regular size meatloaves are all just too much deliciousness without the Southern daughter and her posse around to share the eating. So my solution? I’m basically cupcaking everything. Lasagna? Cupcakes. Mac and cheese? Cupcakes. So it was pretty much only a matter of time before I cupcaked meatloaf…which by the way, was practically begging for a mashed potato frosting. Oh yeah.
