Great Canadian Potato Salad

 Great Canadian potato salad


The spring is well underway, but here in Alberta we’re having an unusually beautiful season and it really feels like summer out there {I didn’t jinx anything, I hope}. We’re already well used to the backyard, deck, BBQing and even camping

We’ve spent the last 2 weekends out at our creek property camping, it’s sure to be a summer of outdoor fun. Just pack some clothes and a cooler of perishable food and off we go!

Yet, to make sure I’m making the most of my relax-time out at the creek, I’m organizing my chaos {heh} to ensure smooth sailing while there. For instance, I’m meal planning our camping time, to make sure we bring enough food but not too much. Also, by prepping as much as I can before we go, it means less time I have cooking while out there. 

This is good practice for me, since meal planning in the past has never gone well. Perhaps after a summer of practice, I’ll be a meal planning superstar by Fall {fingers crossed}! 

This past weekend I decided on Chicken legs, Great Canadian Potato Salad and peas for dinner. So on Friday I made the salad so that I didn’t have to make it while there. 



Great Canadian Potato Salad is delicious, was the perfect meal to take for the weekend and is a side that I will make again {for our BBQ dinners or good for taking along to a potluck}. I love that I sat back with a drink by the fire while hubby took the reins on the BBQ – yes, making ahead was a huge hit in so many ways! 

You can bet I’ll be sourcing more potato salad, macaroni salad and pasta salad recipes to take along on our next camping weekend! 

What are your go-to salads these days?

    I usually buy potato salad since I didn’t know it was this easy. Next time I’m going to try making my own
