Farmer’s Garden Potato Salad #FarmtoJar

I absolutely love this time of the year. It’s warm outside, the market is filled with farm fresh produce, the birds are chirping, and the bees are buzzing. It’s the perfect setting for outdoor dining, and my family really enjoys being able to eat dinner out on the screened porch. I really enjoy these simple pleasures!

Article brought to you in collaboration with Vlasic. Recipe and opinions are my own.

For dinner yesterday I fired up the grill, and made some mouth-watering burgers topped with goat cheese, spring greens, and red onion. The burgers were served up with some fresh berries, and delicious Farmer’s Garden Potato Salad, much like the potato salad my Grandma used to make. It doesn’t get much better than that!

I love the simplicity and freshness of these simple summer meals.

Goat Cheese Burger and Farmer's Garden Pickles

My late Grandmother was well known for her dill pickle potato salad. It was a simple recipe but oh so delicious. To the potatoes she added hard cooked eggs, minced onion, diced dill pickles, salt and pepper. When I picked up a few jars of Farmer’s Garden Pickles by Vlasic at the store last week, I knew right away that I would be making some potato salad much like my Grandma used to make. But instead of the diced onion I used the colorful red pepper and carrots that were in the jar with the Kosher Dill Pickles. Farmer’s Garden pickles are so tasty and are perfect for putting in potato salad, placing atop burgers, or simply by itself.

Farmer’s Garden Potato Salad

ingredients:

2 1/2 pounds yellow boiling potatoes
6 hard cooked eggs, diced
1 (16 ounce) jar of mayonnaise
2 tablespoons mustard
6 Farmer’s Garden Dill Pickle Spears, diced
6 slices of pickled carrots, diced (I used the carrots from the Farmer’s Garden Pickle jar.)
2 tablespoons red peppers (Use all of the red pepper from the Farmer’s Garden Pickle jar.)
salt and pepper

directions:

1. In a large pot of salted water, boil potatoes until tender. Drain and allow to cool. Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.

2. Add to the potatoes the pickles, hard cooked eggs, carrots and red peppers. Stir in mayonnaise, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.

This recipe yields plenty to feed a hungry crowd or a large family.

Farmer’s Garden by Vlasic pickles are artisanal-quality, premium pickles, made with honest ingredients and no artificial flavors. Farmer’s Garden pickles are made with the finest, specially selected ingredients -U.S. – grown cucumbers, whole garlic cloves, slices of red bell pepper, rounds of carrots and fresh herbs and spices – harvested at the peak of freshness. Each Farmer’s Garden cucumber is hand-packed in a traditional mason jar and pickled using home-style canning techniques.

Seventy years ago, pickling pioneer Joseph Vlasic used fresh, locally grown cucumbers, herbs and spices to create unique pickle recipes that have been shared for generations.
