Where would a summer picnic, Fourth of July barbecue, or outdoor block party be without potato salad? In Potato Salad by Debbie Moose, readers can choose from a wide range of recipes for everyone's favorite summertime side dish, from traditional home-style salads to exciting, upscale new options.

Potato salad has long been a classic all-American side dish for summer barbecues, picnics, and potlucks. But this popular dish also has a prominent place in cultures around the world, from the Russian appetizer table to German oil-and-vinegar salads with bacon, to dill-accented Scandinavian delights. In Potato Salad, Moose proves that potato salad can be a salad for all seasons. Chapters include Picnic Pals, which features classic recipes such as German Warm Potato Salad and Ranch House Potato Salad; Uptown Taters, which includes elegant options like Ginger Sweets, which could offer a unique altemative on the Thanksgiving table, and Rosemary-Roasted Garlic Fingerlings, a heavenly combination; and Spud Suppers, which features filling salads that are meals in and of themselves, such as Dilly Shrimp Salad, a potato salad for seafood lovers, and Brunch Time Potato Salad.

Moose shows readers how to select the best varieties of potatoes for salad, and how to properly prepare them, exploring cooking options like grilling and baking as a way to get beyond boiling and impart new flavors. Illustrated throughout with 36 tempting full-color photos, Potato Salad is a must-have for summer entertaining and beyond!
