Autumn is here and so is the American football season. This is also that time of the year when you and me start thinking about what to cook for the upcoming tailgate parties, right? 🙂 I have created this Classic Potato Salad recipe to make sure we both have something traditional, quick, flavorful and easy to make. The ingredients are not expensive so it is also a great way to save on the party dish if you are invited.

For some fans it is a huge family celebration, for others – just another reason to get out and have fun. Whatever it is, one of the old-time favorites is a traditional potato salad, the history of which goes back to the 16th century. Despite being so many years young, it still remains a perfect party starter. Do you agree?

Although, when you have lots of it but can’t really find oirtable food boxes anywhere, packing may become tricky. Inn my case, I almost never have them enough, so here is a small trick that you can do if you are in the same situation: divide your potato salad into small portions and place in cupcake forms. Otherwise – use a large salad bowl, and you are ready to go. Easy, right?

If you want to quickly add something else to your meal kit, think about using the symbols of your favorite team. For example, try cutting them out from fruits or cookies… and do not forget to pick up a decoration tape, napkins, football toys and scarves. Let your imagination work for you.

Enjoy the game and good luck to your team! 🤞

Bon appétit!
